    YES, absolutely. DACA for the WALL.


    That would be very fair to both sides.


    President Obama's DACA policy was very humane. Sending those children back to a country of which they know nothing would be very cruel.


    And letting people walk into our country willy-nilly is so insulting to those people who wait patiently to enter legally.

    There was a time when this may have been possible but thanks to Trump that time has passed and the window of opportunity is now shut.

    But it is Trump who is floating the idea and Democrats resisting.

    As I said, the window was open on this before but that time has passed.

    You are correct.

    To answer the OP, sure, trade DACA for the wall.
    Trump was too generous he doubled the amount of DACA recipients that were originally included but insisted
    the wall, ending the diversity lottery & sections of chain migration be among the conditions. The Democrats
    then balked & the plan became history. That's the facts summed up. Why did the Dems balk it's simple:

    A memo, co-authored by former Clinton communications director Jennifer Palmieri, was sent
    around to allies calling on Democrats to “refuse to offer any votes for Republican spending bills
    that do not offer a fix for Dreamers and instead appropriate funds to deport them.”
    “If Democrats don’t try to do everything in their power to defend Dreamers, that will
    jeopardize Democrats’ electoral chances in 2018 and beyond,” reads the memo. “In short,
    the next few weeks will tell us a lot about the Democratic Party and its long-term electoral prospects.”

    If illegals voted Republicans, Democrat governors would beg ICE to come to California, and New York State.
    Concede the point!

    Nope. I'm against the wall and don't particularly care about DACA. Time to make Trump eat his words about the wall.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    Trump has overextended himself far beyond what his own party will support, never mind the Democrats.

    I'll bet if he tried real hard he could come up with a reason, but DACA ain't it, and actual compromise goes against his nature anyway.

    There is no reason not to let him hang himself after he brought his own rope.

    Agreed. My opinion of Graham often vacillates, but usually I like him. But now I find I've been liking him less.

    Wait, wait....the democrats want to open the government without funds for the wall, a wall that the leaders of the democratic party just a few years ago supported, and now negotiate later on possible funding for some kind of barricade. Does anyone really think democrats will negotiate later on this issue as long as Trump is in office? If so I have some ocean beach front property in Arizona to sell if you are interested.
