BREAKING:Trump Gave a Very Special Easter Present to Mexico

In an Easter Sunday tweet that seemed to end the possibility of any agreement being reached to settle the status of the illegal immigrants known colloquially as “Dreamers,” President Trump announced he would not accept any deal that continued the Delayed Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

Trump’s tweet came amid news of a “caravan” of individuals moving through Mexico that’s allegedly seeking to illegally cross the border into the United States or seek political asylum, as well as speculation regarding possible upcoming negotiations on NAFTA.

“Border Patrol Agents are not allowed to properly do their job at the Border because of ridiculous liberal (Democrat) laws like Catch & Release,” the president said in the tweet, referring to policies where illegal immigrants taken into custody are released while awaiting a hearing with an immigration judge.

 

The president also threatened to shut down NAFTA if the Mexican government didn’t act.

 

The tweet sparked an immediate reaction from Democrats — perhaps the angriest from Rep. Keith Ellison, the controversial Minnesota representative who was in the running for the chairmanship of the Democratic National Committee last year. Unsurprisingly, Ellison contended Trump was a racist.

 

“‘NO MORE DACA DEAL’?!!” Ellison tweeted.

“You were never doing a DACA deal. Your actions gave you away: cancelling DACA with no plan, making racist comments about Black/Brown immigrants, ejecting several by bipartisan deals. You didn’t fool anybody.”

The caravan Trump referred to involves a group of individuals identifying themselves as Pueblos Sin Fronteras (People Without Borders).
