Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 10, 2018Three days later, members of Congress brought him a bill that he quickly turned down. He responded to the proposal with these two tweets: Congress is facing a Friday Jan. 19 deadline to pass a spending bill, which helps determine the government’s budget and discretionary spending for the fiscal year. Last week, President Trump held a bipartisan meeting with members of Congress regarding the looming government shutdown. President Trump made it clear that funding for the wall must be part of any immigration deal Congress brings to his desk. He tweeted the following after the meeting: Mike McKinnon III, Updated: 4:38 PMcenter_img Posted: January 18, 2018 Most #Dreamers are living in the only country they have ever known. They are our neighbors, small business owners, students and veterans. They need our support. The time is now for Congress to act. #IStandWithDreamers #DACA pic.twitter.com/Gl4Xq8SW3I— Kevin Faulconer (@Kevin_Faulconer) January 18, 2018The deadline to come up with a deal is just a day away, we will continue to update as more information comes to the newsroom. The so-called bipartisan DACA deal presented yesterday to myself and a group of Republican Senators and Congressmen was a big step backwards. Wall was not properly funded, Chain & Lottery were made worse and USA would be forced to take large numbers of people from high crime…..— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 12, 2018 ….countries which are doing badly. I want a merit based system of immigration and people who will help take our country to the next level. I want safety and security for our people. I want to stop the massive inflow of drugs. I want to fund our military, not do a Dem defund….— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 12, 2018Since this proposal, President Trump has repeatedly tweeted his belief that the Democrats don’t really care about the “Dreamers.” You can see the tweets on his twitter feed here.The Democrats don’t want to give President Trump funding for his promised border wall but want to save the DACA deal. On the other hand, Republicans say the Democrats are putting people who are here illegally at a bigger priority than our national security. In the bipartisan meeting, President Trump said he would, “take the heat” on a deal that saved the “Dreamers” if he got funding for the wall.Thursday morning, San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer weighed in on the possible government shutdown with posts to his Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts.
