NYT: Trump Says DACA Is ‘Dead,’ and Calls on Mexico to Enforce Border Security

April 2, 2018

President Trump declared on Monday that a plan to protect young immigrants from deportation is “dead” and repeated his calls for Mexico to enforce border security laws and prevent immigrants from coming to the United States illegally.

In a series of tweets Monday morning, Mr. Trump again referred to “large ‘Caravans’ of people” headed toward the United States.

The “caravans,” a popular topic on Fox News, are a group of hundreds of Central Americans who have been traveling through Mexico with the goal of crossing into the United States to seek asylum, or sneak across the border. A BuzzFeed reporter has been traveling with the group and chronicling the experience.
