United States President Donald Trump sent Congress his immigration legislation priorities yesterday, including building a controversial border wall, speeding up deportations and dramatically increasing the number of officials involved in enforcement.

Trump re-ignited the debate over DREAMers last month when he rescinded the Obama-era program known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, which used executive action to give them quasi-legal status.

In this October 7, 2017, photo, President Donald Trump speaks to reporters before leaving the White House in Washington for a brief stop at Andrews Air Force Base in Md., on his way to Greensboro, N.C. The Trump administration sent an immigration policy wish-list to Congress that includes overhauling the country's green-card system, hiring 10,000 more immigration officers and building a wall along the southern border.

Donald Trump has proposed a merit-based immigration system that could benefit highly- skilled Indian workers but prevents them from sponsoring their extended families, as part-of an aggressive plan which the U.S. president said will serve national interest.

Congressional Democratic leaders had previously been optimistic about striking a deal with Donald Trump that would protect the young immigrants.

Are the Los Angeles Rams for real?
Carroll knew John McVay from his two-year stint as San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator in 1995 and "96". Last Sunday Zuerlein was a ideal 7-for-7 on field goals and scored 23 of the Rams' 35 points all on his own.

The list was criticised by Mr Chuck Schumer and Ms Nancy Pelosi, the respective Democratic leaders in the Senate and House.

Last month, Trump announced that he would rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, which protected about 800,000 young, undocumented immigrants from deportation and allowed them to work and go to school in the US.

On Oct. 8, the Trump administration provided a list of conditions for any congressional legislation that offered protections against deportation for DACA recipients, who were brought to the USA before turning 16-years-old.

Border wall funding in particular was ruled out during a previous discussion with Trump, the lawmakers added.

"Dreamers" is a name for DACA recipients.

The donations are coming in from all over, including a large van packed with supplies from the Seminole County Sheriff's Office. In addition, two New Jersey National Guard armories continue to accept donations to aid Puerto Rico hurricane relief efforts.

Mayor Emanuel said President Trump's newly adopted hard line on protecting so-called "Dreamers" is not changing his position on Immigration Reforms.

On Sunday the White House released a blueprint for a much broader immigration overhaul - much of which Trump wants passed as a condition of making DACA permanent. "In fact, it's endangering them", Pelosi said.

"The goal of the merit-based system that awards green cards based on factors like education, employability and English language proficiency is to promote assimilation and financial success", the White House said. In a joint statement, they said that the plans present no attempt at compromise.

Speaking to reporters in a conference call Sunday night, Trump administration officials insisted that the proposals came from officials at immigration enforcement agencies.
