Trump rejects bipartisan ‘Dreamer’ immigration plan

Jan 12, 2018

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump rejected a bipartisan “Dreamer” immigration plan proposed by a group of U.S. senators, saying it did not fund his long-touted wall along the border of Mexico and calling it “a step backward.”

“The so-called bipartisan DACA deal presented yesterday to myself and a group of Republican Senators and Congressmen was a big step backwards,” Trump wrote in a post on Twitter, one day after the group said it had reached a tentative agreement to protect young “Dreamer” immigrants from deportation.

Under the proposal, the United States “would be forced to take large numbers of people from high crime countries which are doing badly,” Trump added.
