Trump spends Easter tweeting about DACA

Former President Barack Obama created the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program to provide temporary protection and work permits to hundreds of thousands of immigrants who are living in the US illegally after being brought here as children.

The "caravans" Trump mentions to in the Twitter post refers to the approximately 1,500 Central Americans who are traveling through Mexico and will soon reach the USA border where they will likely request refugee status in the country, as Breitbart Texas reported.

"Mexico is doing very little, if not NOTHING, at stopping people from flowing into Mexico through their Southern Border, and then into the US", he wrote.

President Barack Obama originally introduced the DACA policy in an executive order in June, 2012 as a "temporary stopgap measure" to give Congress time to take required action on immigration.

Technically that's a newsy reversal, as Trump has previously insisted that the only reason DACA hasn't already been renewed is that Democrats wouldn't act on his supposed desire to fix and extend the program.

In a flow-up tweet, he added: "These big flows of people are all trying to take advantage of DACA".

"They had a great chance". "I have been holding it in my heart for several months, I think I shared it with a few of my people and that's it. Donald Trump will be the next president of the United States again in 2020". Trump tweeted one hour after he began the day by wishing his followers a "HAPPY EASTER!".

Ambedkar statues damaged in UP
These events of statue vandalism triggered a protest in the state. "We will be staging a sit-in till it has been replaced". On Saturday morning, some unidentified people damaged the statue of Dalit leader Dr BR Ambedkar in Jhunsi area.

"These individuals do not have passports or legal documents to be in Mexico, yet you got an agency that's helping them get to our [U.S.] border", Judd said. "Can't happen that way anymore", said Mr. Trump. "A lot of people are coming in because they want to take advantage of DACA". "They laugh at our dumb immigration laws", he said.

"In a separate tweet, Trump said Mexico is ".doing very little, if not NOTHING, at stopping people from flowing into Mexico through their Southern Border, and then into the U.S".

The "nuclear option" Trump called for refers to changing a Senate rule to allow legislation to pass with a majority vote, instead of the necessary 60 votes.

President Donald Trump kicked off his Easter Sunday in familiar fashion: with a tweetstorm attacking everyone from Democrats in Congress to the Mexican government.

The thorniest issues in the NAFTA talks with Mexico and Canada concern us demands on automotive trade and dispute settlement systems.

Although Trump threatened a veto last month of an omnibus spending bill because it did not address the fate of Dreamers and did not fully fund his border wall, he did sign the bill.

"Mexico has got to help us at the border", Trump told reporters before he attended Easter services at an Episcopal church near his Palm Beach, Florida, home, as he held his wife, Melania's, hand.
