A series of tweets from President Donald Trump saying DACA is dead is creating panic among the 6,000 DACA recipients here in Minnesota and the almost 700,000 across the country.

President Donald Trump declared as "dead" on Monday a program that protects immigrants brought to the United States illegally as children and pressed Congress to "immediately" pass legislation to secure the USA border with Mexico.

President Trump revived his rhetorical attacks Monday on Mexico, free trade, immigration, and the Democrats, even though illegal border crossings are down and the president himself killed off a key program at issue. Right now renewals are being granted, but immigration Rivera says that could change if an Appeals court rules in the President's favor later this year.

"He claimed "DACA is dead" because of Democrats and, " everyone wants to get onto the DACA bandwagon".

Two more killed as Gaza death toll reaches 21
The death brings the toll for Friday's clashes to 18 Palestinians killed, with two more killed since the border protest. Israel considers the vast majority of the migrants to be job-seekers and says it has no legal obligation to keep them.

Seven months later, DACA participants are living with the uncertainty over whether they will be protected or targeted for deportation. He also has said that he would sign a bipartisan proposal to protect the young immigrants, but he regularly threatens Democrats that there will be no deal. He also said that a deal to help "Dreamer" immigrants is "dead because the Democrats didn't care or act". "Act now Congress, our country is being stolen!" he tweeted. "In addition, a new immigrant couldn't take advantage of the suspended program because they have to prove they have been here for several years".

Mr. Trump also tweeted that Senate Republicans should abandon the 60-vote threshold and pass his immigration policies with a simple majority. Trump tweeted, referring to the Barack Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals programme.

President Trump accuses Mexico of doing very little to prevent people and drugs from coming from Mexico to the United States and threatens to denounce NAFTA.

A call between the two men in February grew testy after Trump refused to publicly affirm Peña Nieto's position that Mexico will not pay for the wall's construction, leading the Mexican leader to cancel a planned visit to Washington.

Maybe we're all confused about where Trump stands on DACA because he appears to be confused about what the program actually does.

His remarks Tuesday come on the heels of multiple days of hardline immigration rhetoric from the Trump White House, with the President calling on Congress to pass strict border laws in a series of tweets beginning Sunday.

"But on Sunday, he indicated that the time had passed, writing on Twitter: "'Caravans' coming. Must pass tough laws and build the WALL.

Trump said he told Mexico "very strongly" that "you're going to have to do something about these caravans". Trump said the USA needs more resources to stop illegal immigration.
