Here’s the deal: “dreamers” could earn green-card status by volunteering for a military-service length period of time to serve on the construction crews building the wall. The more “dreamers” who enroll, the faster the wall gets completed! The Davis-Bacon Act would be suspended for these purposes, and the volunteers would be unpaid (except, perhaps, for some small stipend along the lines of what prisoners get for work serving in federal prisons). Food (MRE or above) and shelter (tent or above) will be provided. Only upon completion of the wall across our entire southern border will the green card status for those who have completed their duty be awarded.
Democrats’ inaction has enraged liberal activists, who have shifted their anger away from the Republicans who run Congress. Democrats are trying to balance their commitment to a progressive priority with their desire to avoid a government shutdown — and the potential fallout in the 2018 elections.
In a post on Friday, Coulter responded to a tweet by President Trump in which he reiterated that he would only be willing to sign off on an amnesty beginning with nearly 800,000 illegal aliens if his list of pro-American immigration principles were enacted simultaneously.
The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) confirms some countries either delay or refuse to repatriate their citizens who are here illegally, but will not divulge which ones as it might “impact diplomatic negotiations.”
Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced Tuesday that an Obama-era program granting young adult illegal immigrants tentative legal status in the United States is illegal and will be phased out over the course of six months.
The Trump administration opted to phase out the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program to give Congress time to pass legislation that could offer a permanent solution for young illegal immigrants, who were brought to the U.S. as children and have grown up here.
“The executive branch, through DACA, deliberately sought to achieve what the legislative branch specifically refused to authorize on multiple occasions,” Mr. Sessions said Tuesday at the Justice Department. “Such an open ended circumvention of immigration laws was an unconstitutional exercise of authority by the Executive Branch.”
Mr. Sessions said Department of Homeland Security Acting Secretary Elaine Duke opted recessed the program and to wind down the program over a six month period.
Eight people have been found dead in a tractor-trailer outside a Walmart in Texas in what police are calling a human trafficking case.
Several other people have been taken to hospitals.
San Antonio police said a Walmart employee was approached in a parking lot by a person from the truck who was asking for water late on Saturday night or early on Sunday morning.

She spends her days preparing legal strategies to help undocumented immigrants stay in the country. But at any moment, Lizbeth Mateo could be picked up for deportation herself. She is an immigration lawyer with her own immigration lawyer.
Last month, Ms. Mateo was officially sworn in as a lawyer, taking an oath to uphold the United States Constitution. After years of flaunting her status as undocumented and openly defying immigration law, she is now part of the legal system and hopes to represent clients who, like her, entered the United States illegally.
…In 2014, California became the only state in the country to allow undocumented immigrants to practice law. The next year, New York courts reached a similar conclusion. There is no official count of how many undocumented immigrants are now working as lawyers, but Mr. Reyes Savalza can name about a dozen.
…Ms. Mateo came to the United States with her family from Oaxaca as a teenager in 1998.
