Trump Threatens To Leave NAFTA, Says DACA Deal Is Off

Donald J. Trump on Twitter:

Trump also warned Mexico to halt the passage of about 1,100 migrants, many from Honduras, who had been marching in a caravan along roadsides and train tracks in the southern Mexican state of Oaxaca.

It is not clear if these tweets will have a significant impact on the foreign policy.

"I think the point was is that the legislation that we put forward (earlier this year) was created to have as part of it an extremely strong deterrence and prevention component", the official said. Republicans must go to Nuclear Option to pass tough laws NOW.

The organizers of the caravan, People Without Borders, claim that the president is only using the caravan as a way to push his agenda, according to Fox News.

Pueblos Sin Fronteras has organized similar caravans in the past, including two previous year. Many of them stay in Mexico since they know they don't qualify as refugees and they are afraid to be turned back by American border officials. "Until we can have a wall and proper security, we're going to be guarding our border with the military", he said, calling the measure a "big step" that had rarely been done before.

Another DACA student interning in Springfield, Oneida Vargas said, "It's frustrating...as it is our lives are in limbo and it just kind of seems like they are playing a game with our lives...it just adds a lot more stress than we already have". Attacking the US President, Durbin said to Reuters, "The only person gaming DACA is not in the caravan". Otherwise, he will stop "their cash cow" - or NAFTA, as he considers.

"He ended DACA past year". However, courts blocked this decision. Such proposals are likely to face opposition from moderate Republicans and Democrats going into the midterm elections. They had a great, great chance, but we'll have to take a look because Mexico has got to help us at the border. He said that he would have to take a look at what will happen with DACA recipients.

President Donald Trump has threatened negotiations over the North American Free Trade Association (NAFTA), as well as foreign aid to Honduras - one of the poorest countries in Latin America - over a "caravan" containing roughly 1,000 migrants that is supposedly headed for the US border. About half of all active DACA recipients reside in the three states with the highest numbers of DACA-recipient residents: California (almost 200,000), Texas (more than 110,000), and IL (more than 36,000).

President Trump accuses Mexico of doing very little to prevent people and drugs from coming from Mexico to the United States and threatens to denounce NAFTA.

Trump has been deeply frustrated about the lack of progress building what was the signature promise of his campaign: a "big, lovely wall" along the Mexican border.

The administration is also pushing Congress to terminate a 1997 court settlement that requires the government to release children from custody to parents, adult relatives or other caretakers as their cases make their way through immigration court.

"If you oppose those fixes, as Democrats do, you're basically saying you want endless numbers of new waves of illegal immigrants", the official said.

Through his tweets, Trump echoed the remarks made by Brandon Judd, the president of the National Border Patrol Council, on "fox and friends".

"ACT CONGRESS!" President Donald Trump wrote in a series of continual, sometimes-misleading tweets Monday after a weekend in Florida with several immigration hardliners. "They need to pass laws to end the catch-and-release program that'll allow us to hold them for a long time".
