Judd also said Congress needs to pass tougher laws, an idea Trump appeared to echo, and create more bed space for immigration authorities to house people.

Central American migrants arrive in Ixtepec, Mexico, before continuing their journey to the USA despite President Donald Trump's vow to stamp out illegal immigration. They also argue that attaching the provisions to a narrow DACA deal would be harshly punitive against immigrants without offering many protections in return to those who have been living peacefully, if illegally, in the U.S. for years.

Trump said that the US-Mexican borders are unprotected by laws, while holding high hopes from the ruling government to act together to make powerful laws like Canada and Mexico.

President Trump's announcement last fall that he was ending DACA resulted in mass protests, including here in the Twin Cities. "This President manufactured a crisis when he ended DACA, and now he wants to shift the blame onto those who have been fighting to protect our Dreamers". "He's in the Oval Office" of the White House, Durbin said referring to Trump.

U.S. Rep. Vicente Gonzalez, D-McAllen, said be believes the president's tweets show just how much Trump misunderstands DACA.

"Until we can have a wall and proper security, we are going to be guarding our border with the military. They need to pass laws to end the catch-and-release program that'll allow us to hold them for a long time".

Trump has been seething over immigration since realizing the major spending bill he signed last month barely funds the "big, beautiful" border wall he has promised his supporters.

According to Fox News, the leaders of the 1,000-immigrant strong march towards the United States' southern border accused Trump of "bullying" the refugee community; adding his "caravan" will continue to stand with all "displaced peoples".

Last month, Senator Angus King, an independent who caucuses with the Democrats, said Trump's rejection of that offer was the "high-water mark" for the wall's prospects in Congress, where support for it is tepid at best.
