President Trump has made his demands known to Democrats by tweeting on Friday, “The Democrats have been told, and fully understand, that there can be no DACA without the desperately needed WALL at the Southern Border and an END to the horrible Chain Migration & ridiculous Lottery System of Immigration etc. We must protect our Country at all cost!” The Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program allows young undocumented immigrants who were brought into the U.S. as children to legally work and live in the U.S. It is an Obama-era executive order that was rescinded by the Trump Administration in 2017. This move has put almost 800,000 young undocumented immigrants in serious danger of deportation. Trump has asked Congress and Senate to pass a more permanent DACA legislation.
The construction of a border wall between the U.S. and Mexico has been an oft repeated promise since President Trump’s election campaign. Whereas, chain migration and the U.S. visa lottery system have been criticized by Trump as national security concerns as being vulnerable to abuse by the enemies of the U.S. Chain migration refers to the immigration guidelines of bringing in family members into the U.S. and the visa lottery system refers to the distribution of 50,000 U.S. visas to countries with low immigration rates to the U.S.
