Inside The DACA/Wall Negotiation

12/30/17

Trump Talking About The Raise Act

On Friday morning, President Trump tweeted, “The Democrats have been told, and fully understand, that there can be no DACA without the desperately needed WALL at the Southern Border and an END to the horrible Chain Migration & ridiculous Lottery System of Immigration etc. We must protect our Country at all cost!” The Democrats have recently stated that they will not sign on to a bill to keep the government funded next month without a deal to protect Dreamers, (illegal immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as children). However, as evident in President Trump’s tweet, the president will not agree to any deal unless the Democrats also agree to a border wall and changes to the U.S. immigration system along with other White House priorities.

Democrats Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer are set to meet with Republicans Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell on Wednesday in order to negotiate on the deals. They will be working to avoid a government shutdown. Drew Hammill, a Pelosi spokesman, said, “We're not going to negotiate through the press and look forward to a serious negotiation at Wednesday’s meeting when we come back.”

Regardless of what will happen on Wednesday, it seems very unlikely that President Trump will give in to a deal that does not give him what he wants. Since his campaign, he has been heavily invested in improving the U.S. immigration system. He has frequently called for an end to chain migration and the Diversity Visa Lottery. During his election, he even claimed that he would deport every single illegal immigrant although he seems to have shifted away from that standpoint.

Another potential element would be the proposed "RAISE Act", which if passed, would reduce the amount of legal immigration per year by 50%. Similiar in national impact to the 1965 immigration act. Many supporters of the bill cite issues with the lack of cultural assimilation and cohesiveness that high levels of immigration currently cause, and believe that lower levels of immigration would allow for such assimilation. Other supporters of the bill cite the fact that high levels of immigration increases the supply of labor, and therefore tends to lower wages of (mostly) blue collar workers.

This past September, he even came close to closing a deal with Schumer and Pelosi, but it fell through since it did not include funding for a Wall, only beefed-up security. Hopefully, President Trump will have better luck this time around during negotiations.
