The White House said Wednesday that President Trump opposes cutting a deal with Congress to protect young illegal immigrants from deportation for three years in exchange for three years of funding for a border wall.
He said as a result of a recent agreement in Congress to lift spending caps, “the routine appropriations process should yield wall funding in” an overall spending bill under negotiation.
“Securing the border is one of the most vital functions of government and is a core part of any routine funding bill,” Mr. Shah said in a statement. “Separately, we have never stopped working to negotiate an immigration reform package that addresses DACA, stops illegal immigration and secures and modernizes our legal immigration system.”
