I want border-wall funding, green-card reform for DACA

House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer, center speaks to immigrant-rights supporters at the U.S. Capitol in Washington last month

The immigration demands that the administration of President Donald Trump sent to Congress on Sunday is likely to complicate any deal with Democrats regarding the protection for roughly 700,000 young people now facing possible deportation from the USA, reports said.

The Trump administration has sent Congress an immigration wish-list that includes overhauling the country's green-card system, hiring 10,000 more immigration officers and building a wall along the U.S. -Mexico border.

The president will likely need some Democrat votes in the Senate in order to pass immigration reform, and the Center for Immigration Studies' Mark Krikorian laid out in the National Review how Trump's negotiation strategy will work against Democrats.

A longtime Democratic lawmaker thinks negotiating with President Trump on immigration policy is "fanciful thinking" in the wake of the hard-line conservative proposals he announced late Sunday.

"Legislation must include reforms to allow the quick and safe return of illegal alien minors to their home country", said Ronald Vitiello, acting chief of the Border Patrol at Customs and Border Protection.

After that dinner, Democratic leaders were hopeful that Trump would not demand a border wall in exchange for signing legislation to provide legal status to immigrants under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA). David Perdue (R-Ga.) and Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) that would dramatically cut legal immigration by prohibiting new citizens from sponsoring extended family members for immigration, ending the diversity visa lottery and creating a points-based system that favors immigrants with education and skills.

And, notably Trump demanded Congress fund his border wall, which Mexico was supposed to pay for. Under the program, they temporarily avoid deportation and receive work permits.

Coetzee said he knew the areas that required further work: "We had them under pressure at times, but you can not give the ball away against New Zealand ".

"This proposal fails to represent any attempt at compromise", the legislators said in a joint statement. They include funding for Trump's border wall, drastically increased immigration enforcement, and even new restrictions on legal immigration.

The White House unveiled its vision for immigration reform Sunday and said that it had sent the document to Congress.

President Donald Trump had been saying for weeks he was interested in finding a legislative fix to protect from deportation hundreds of thousands of young immigrants who were brought to the United States as children.

The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (Daca) programme, set up in 2012 under President Barack Obama, is due to expire in March, casting doubt on the future of those protected.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.), House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) and Mr. Trump all suggested that they had agreed to pair protections for the young migrants with border security provisions that didn't include the controversial proposal for a wall along the USA border with Mexico.

But Democratic leaders nearly immediately denounced the demands.

But it wasn't immediately clear if the Sunday announcements, covering most of Trump's red-flag immigration issues, were meant to cover H-1B review also. "If the president was serious about protecting the Dreamers, his staff has not made a good faith effort to do so".
