President Trump: 'Fairly close' on DACA deal, pushes for 'massive border security'

Reports of a deal between Donald Trump and Democratic leaders to protect undocumented migrants who arrived in the United States as children have generated ripples of doubt among the president's supporters, some of whom were alarmed by Trump's statement on Thursday that "a wall will come later".
Trump met with Democratic leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer Wednesday night, and it was reported that they had made a deal on DACA.
In a series of tweets on Thursday, the president said that the wall was "already under construction", implying that the subject of funding and building the wall was not germane to the DACA negotiations. He also said he is insisting on "massive border security" as part of any agreement. "He added: "'I think we're fairly close but we have to get massive border security".
In a statement following the Trump administration's announcement to rescind DACA, San Jose Mayor Sam Liccadro said, "Punting the issue to Congress, without any affirmative leadership to enact a legislative solution, amounts to a cowardly cop-out, placing the futures of these young women and men in serious jeopardy".
"I don't want to bind ourselves into a construct that makes reaching a conclusion on DACA impossible", Short said.
Others argue that Trump should stay the course and not stray from his hardline campaign stance at all.
"You have 800,000 young people brought here, no fault of there own".
An additional estimated 17,000 individuals from India and 6,000 Pakistan respectively are eligible for DACA, placing India in the top ten countries for DACA eligibility, it said.
Rep. Steve King, arguably the most anti-immigration member of Congress, tweeted Wednesday night that if this agreement is struck, "Trump base is blown up, destroyed, irreparable, and disillusioned beyond fix".

It now has about 15 co-sponsors attaching their name to the legislation, including the party's reputed presidential aspirants.
The president said via Twitter on Thursday, "Does anybody really want to throw out good, educated and accomplished young people who have jobs, some serving in the military? As we said last night, there was no final deal", Schumer and Pelosi said in a joint statement. The push comes as DACA is set to officially end in six months and Congress is tasked with finding a solution in the meantime that'd protect almost 800,000 Dreamers.
The uncertaintly felt by Republicans - was also one felt by Democrats - and was fueled throughout the day by the President, as he put out a variety of messages on immigration that were seemingly at odds. President Trump, as usual, only read this description as far as "created by President Obama", or maybe "allows undocumented immigrants", which is why his administration formally announced the termination of the program earlier this month.
"We have to make a whole new set of standards".
House Republicans would normally rebel over such an approach, which many view as amnesty for lawbreakers.
The deal, Democrats said, would enshrine protections of DACA into law.
A Perdue spokeswoman said any DACA deal should include a proposal he is co-sponsoring with Arkansas Republican Sen.
