Trump is also asking for changes to the legal immigration system.

President Trump has told Democrats that he will not sign any bill regarding protections under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program without funding for The Wall being including in the legislation.

Trump said previous year that he was ending DACA but gave Congress until March to deliver a legislative fix.

As U.S. Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., tweeted Friday, "The only thing that's not serious is the Gang of Amnesty's ridiculous proposal: amnesty in the millions, no end to chain migration, use diversity-lottery green cards for TPS aliens (T = temporary!), & pittance for phony border security". Jeff Flake, said Jason Samuels, a spokesman for the Arizona Republican. He said that the administration was undercutting bipartisan efforts to help those protected by DACA with the $18 billion request and other immigration demands. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the plan has not been made public. The entire border stretches nearly 2,000 miles, although much of it is already impassable.

Trump is basically saying that he will not fix granting "amnesty" to DACA recipients unless he gets the funding required for the wall and related expenditure. President Trump has also promised to build a wall with Mexico as a centerpiece of his presidency but offered few details of where it would be built, when and at what cost.


In essence, that's what he said in a document obtained by The Wall Street Journal.

The administration has now provided one of its most detailed blueprints of how the president hopes to carry out a signature campaign pledge.
