Congressional Democrats, hoping for a vote tsunami in midterm elections this fall, are being driven on by a raging anti-Trump grassroots voting base as they seek to shield almost 800,000 undocumented immigrants brought illegally to the United States as children.

"It's a bit naïve for Democrats to think when they control no branches of government ... they're gonna get everything they want", he said.

He insisted the White House was "ready, willing and able to make a deal on DACA".

"It's frightful for the security of our country", Trump said, noting there was not enough funding for the wall he has promised to build on the U.S.

Ten is also the number of Democratic votes Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell may need to peel away to fund the government before a Friday midnight shutdown deadline, so red-state Democrats will come under intense pressure.

Regarding DACA, the president reiterated that he was working toward a deal, but that Democrats were not helping.

Both Democrats and Republicans have said it's the other party's fault if the government does end up shutting down. However, as lawmakers return from the holiday weekend, the mood on Capitol Hill between the two parties - and even between factions within Republican enclaves - has soured after a tumultuous week that included a bipartisan group of senators announcing they had an immigration deal, Trump rejecting it and reports that the President had used vulgar language to describe the African nations affected by such a proposal. "DACA is probably dead", he said in a Twitter post Sunday. Kamala Harris and Sen.

Is this any different than shoplifters demanding that they be allowed to keep what they-or, in this case, their illegal-immigrant parents-have stolen?

President Donald Trump boards Air Force One on January 12. "He is a bigot. I am using his own actions and words to indict him for being a racist".

Then there are Democrats who scent a chance to stand firm on immigration to woo 2020 primary voters, who will pick who will duel an apparently weakened President for the White House.

Her parents came to the US legally but have since moved back, she said. President Trump announced in September that the program will be terminated by March 5, 2018, which will lead to the deportation of almost 700,000 DREAMers brought as children to the United States.
