    Trump says no amnesty for 'Dreamers,' signals support in broader deal

    Trump says no amnesty for 'Dreamers,' signals support in broader deal

    WASHINGTON, Jan 20 (Reuters) - President Donald Trump said on Sunday his proposed immigration deal to end a 30-day partial government shutdown would not lead to amnesty for "Dreamers," but appeared to signal support for amnesty as part of a broader immigration agreement.

    In a morning Twitter storm, Trump also said he would not seek the removal of millions of illegal aliens living in the United States, while bashing House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her fellow Democrats for turning down his offer on Saturday.

    "No, Amnesty is not a part of my offer. It is a 3-year extension of DACA. Amnesty will be used only on a much bigger deal, whether on immigration or something else," Trump said on Twitter.

    "Likewise there will be no big push to remove the 11,000,000 plus people who are here illegally-but be careful Nancy!"

    The Dreamers, which refers to undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children, are protected from deportation under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

    DACA was put in place under former President Barack Obama. The Trump administration said in September 2017 it would rescind DACA but it remains in effect under court order.

    Trump did not make clear what he was referring to regarding the 11 million people mentioned in his tweet. About 12 million people are living in the United States illegally, according to U.S. Department of Homeland Security estimates.

    About one-quarter of the U.S. government shut down on Dec. 22 over Trump's demand for $5.7 billion to fund a wall along the border with Mexico, which Democrats have refused to consider. Some 800,000 federal workers have been ordered to stay home or work without pay during the shutdown.

    On Sunday, a day after Trump's DACA proposal, there appeared to be signs of movement, even as Democrats insisted the government should reopen before proceeding with talks over border security.

    "What the president proposed yesterday - increasing border security, looking at TPS, looking at the Dreamers - I'll use that as a starting point. But you've got to start by reopening the government," U.S. Senator Mark Warner said on NBC's "Meet the Press."

    Temporary Protected Status (TPS) refers to another class of immigrants - nationals from designated countries affected by armed conflict, natural disaster, or other strife.

    Warner, a Virginia Democrat, said reopening the government ahead of border security negotiations was important for preventing future shutdowns.

    "If the president can arbitrarily shut down the government now, he will do it time and again," Warner said.

    Warner also said Congress should approve pay for federal workers affected by the shutdown before they miss another paycheck this week.

    "Let's at least pay them on Thursday, so they don't have to go through more angst," Warner said. (Reporting by David Morgan in Washington; Additional reporting by Yasmeen Abutaleb in Washington; Editing by Jeffrey Benkoe)

    He has been saying a lot since about 3 days after he was elected, if anyone was listening.

    Not only saying, but also in actions and what he doesn't do.

    He did the same thing when he was campaigning. I don't ever recall a more inconsistent presidential candidate. The man was literally flopping and flipping in ever direction. At times his message was good, but then he would suddenly say something stupid that would bring his bona fides into question.

    Shut down all immigration and clean up this mess. Not ADD millions more people on top of the pile!

    We cannot afford this!

    What was the "stunt" with the Naturalization of the 5 people getting citizenship? One was here since 1992!

    We need to put a pause on that too. We are overrun and we cannot keep up with this!

    WHERE IS EXECUTIVE ORDER TO END BIRTHRIGHT CITIZENSHIP? ANOTHER PROMISE NOT KEPT!

    WHERE ARE THE "SAFE ZONES" KEEPING REFUGEES OUT OF OUR COUNTRY! SEND THEM BACK!

    In other words, he broke his promise to us on deporting them all. He screwed us big time.
