Trump says no deal reached with Democrats on DACA

By  | 

WASHINGTON (AP) -- UPDATE: 9-14-17

President Donald Trump is denying that a deal was made with Democrats on young immigrants. He tweeted out the message early Thursday morning saying "No deal was made last night on DACA. Massive border security would have to be agreed to in exchange for consent. Would be subject to vote."

ORIGINAL STORY:

The top House and Senate Democrats have announced agreement with President Donald Trump to protect certain immigrants brought illegally to this country as children -- along with some border security enhancements.

The agreement would specifically not include Trump's long-sought border wall. It would enshrine protections for the nearly 800,000 immigrants who benefited from a program created by former President Barack Obama that Trump has announced he is ending.

The agreement was announced in a joint statement from House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York, following a dinner the pair had with Trump at the White House.

The President had previously told lawmakers he's open to signing legislation protecting thousands of young immigrants from deportation even if the bill does not include funding for his promised border wall.

It marks the second time in two weeks that Trump has bypassed Republicans to deal with Pelosi and Schumer.

Following Pelosi and Schumer's announcement, Press Secretary Sarah Sanders tweeted, "While DACA and border security were both discussed, excluding the wall was certainly not agreed to."
