‘Any deal on DACA that does not include desperately needed wall is a total waste of time,’ says president
President Trump rejected a proposed immigration bill drafted by Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Chris Coons (D-DE) that doesn’t include any funding for a wall along the southern border.
McCain and Coons formally introduced a bill that would grant DACA recipients amnesty and bolster border security, but it doesn’t include any authorization spending for the $25 billion Trump is seeking to build a fortified border wall.
“While reaching a deal cannot come soon enough for America’s service members, the current political reality demands bipartisan cooperation to address the impending expiration of the DACA program and secure the southern border,” said McCain.
