President Donald Trump on Saturday accused Democrats of using DACA only "as a campaign issue" and called on Twitter followers to "vote Republican" as the expiration deadline neared for the program affecting as many as 700,000 aliens brought to the U.S. as children.

Republicans want to fix DACA far more than the Democrats do. The Dems had all three branches of government back in 2008-2011, and they decided not to do anything about DACA. They only want to use it as a campaign issue. Vote Republican!

The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program expires on March 5.

Trump has demanded that any legislation for a permanent fix must include $25 billion for a wall on the southern border with Mexico to fight illegal immigration.

The two-year budget Congress passed Wednesday totals more than $400 billion but does not include funding for the wall, though "it also doesn't rule out" the money, a top Senate Republican aide told Newsmax.

Some Democrats admitted Friday that the party had lost leverage on the DACA issue because of the bipartisan budget deal.
