Trump targets Dems over DACA amid shutdown talks


(Worthy News) - President Trump on Sunday hit Democrats for their hesitance to include protections for beneficiaries of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program in talks to end a prolonged government shutdown, despite his own administration's insistence that the program be left out of negotiations.

Republicans have floated compromises to end the ongoing partial government shutdown that would include funding for Trump's desired border wall and protections for "Dreamers" who benefit from DACA, but Democrats have expressed skepticism and the White House has stymied such proposals.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said on "Fox News Sunday" that he believes the White House and Democrats may be amenable to such a deal, and urged Trump to reopen the government for a short period of time to allow lawmakers to negotiate. [ Source: The Hill (Read More...) ]
