President Donald Trump denied claims he made a deal on Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), though a series of tweets implies he already caved.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., released a joint statement following a meeting at the White House declaring victory on DACA with no funding for the The Wall.

He followed up the tweet with another that takes funding for the border wall out of the equation, altogether. President Trump tweeted The Wall “is already under construction” and “will continue to be built” regardless of the deal on DACA.

While the Trump Administration has made progress on the President’s key campaign promise, without legislation funding the project whatever construction efforts are underway will cease when they run out of money.

White House Legislative Affairs Director Marc Short said just last week that the Trump Administration would be open to trading amnesty for tax cuts. A trade for the RAISE Act, which cuts legal immigration in half in transforms the system from family-based to merit-based, was previously on the table.

President Trump proceeded to tweet what have long been Democratic talking points, a series of claims People’s Pundit Daily (PPD) and others have shown to be completely false.

The average age for a DACA recipient is 25. On education, the Migration Policy Institute, which is pro-amnesty, found in an August 2017 study that only 5% of DACA-qualified illegals have a college degree. Put simply, the “DACA population is more likely to be in lower-skilled jobs when compared to all workers ages 16 to 32.”

They are represented by an even larger percentage of low-skilled workers than legal citizens.

Worth noting, the DREAM Act Democrats and the President are looking to push through Congress will provide legal status to far more illegal immigrants than DACA, 5 million juxtaposed to 800,000, respectively.
