President Trump denied he struck a deal with Democrats on immigration reform, just hours after congressional leaders declared victory in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) fight.

“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,” Trump tweeted Thursday.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said late Wednesday that they struck a deal for a legislative fix to DACA, which shielded close to 800,000 young undocumented immigrants to deportation.

Increased border security and other measures would be part of the package, they said, but funding Trump’s massive border wall was left out of the agreement.

Schumer and Pelosi declared victory Wednesday night, only to be rebuffed by the President.

Trump, who scarfed down Chinese food with the Democratic leaders at the White House on Wednesday, doubled down on his wall talk after their announcement.

“The WALL, which is already under construction in the form of new renovation of old and existing fences and walls, will continue to be built,” Trump continued in a second tweet.

While some portions of the more than 2,000-mile border with Mexico do have barricades or fences, Congress hasn’t approved money to build Trump’s massive wall — expected to cost tens of billions of dollars.Send a Letter to the Editor
