Trump resumes DACA blame game, says ‘our country is being stolen’

“No longer works. Must build Wall and secure our borders with proper Border legislation. Democrats want No Borders, hence drugs and crime!” he posted.

The tweets largely echoed a Twitter stream Trump unleashed on Easter Sunday, when he posted a series of hard-line messages on immigration, just after wishing his Twitter followers a “HAPPY EASTER!”

On Sunday, Trump declared there would be “NO MORE DACA DEAL,” called on congressional Republicans to pass tougher immigration policies because the U.S. border with Mexico is “Getting more dangerous,” threatened the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and called for his desired border wall.

He also claimed, without providing context, that “Caravans’ coming.” “Fox and Friends” aired a segment earlier Sunday that included a screen banner that read: “CARAVAN OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS HEADED TO U.S.”

The president was criticized on Sunday by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and other Democrats.

“Time and time again, the president has walked away from bipartisan proposals that are exactly what he asked for,” said Drew Hamill, a spokesman for Pelosi. “When an agreement to protect the Dreamers is reached, it will be despite this president rather than with his leadership.”

Trump ended DACA — an Obama-era program that protected millions of immigrants who came to the United States illegally as children — in September, but has said he wants protections for Dreamers, as DACA recipients are known, as part of a broader immigration bill.

Despite months of negotiations, a deal on DACA that would get the support of the White House has not emerged.
