Border Wall-Dreamers Deal Implodes

“The White House and congressional Democrats traded immigration offers futilely over the weekend, according to three sources familiar with the talks, leaving little chance of an immediate deal to protect Dreamers,” Politico reports.

“The White House on Sunday made an 11th-hour push to include billions of dollars in border wall funding in a massive congressional spending bill due this week, but clashed with congressional Democrats over how far to go in protecting young immigrants that face deportation.”

Playbook: “This seems like a simple transaction: some border money, for a DACA fix. Why can’t they get this done?”
