Democrats are dismissing President Trump's list of conditions for any deal on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, with Democratic leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi complaining that Trump's "list includes the wall, which was explicitly ruled out of the negotiations."

About "The only reason not to cut a deal is if Democrats care less about finding a solution than they do about having the issue of illegal immigration to campaign on." I can think of at least $25 billion other reasons.

The assumption that Trump would go for it and that the virulently anti-immigration right wing of Congress go along with it---they would still be "taking our jobs" while "living off taxpayer dollars, right?---is a giant leap like from Earth to Venus.

About "When Obama was elected president in 2008, Democrats controlled the White House and the House of Representatives, and had a filibuster-proof majority in the Senate, yet they took zero action on immigration reform." The Democrats only had a filibuster-proof majority for 60 working days during that period; they used it to pass the ACA. With the commitment by Republicans to block every Obama initiative, loss of the filibuster-proof majority was loss of immigration reform and a good number of other improvements.
