Trump pushes Republicans to use 'nuclear option' on border

On April 3, he took to his Twitter account to criticise the DACA deal and NAFTA while terming it as a cash cow for Mexico and Canada and blaming them for the illegal migration to the United States through the US-Mexican border. DACA allows about 800,000 youths brought to the United States before they were 16 to receive a renewable two-year work permit and protection against deportation.

"DACA is dead because the Democrats didn't care or act, and now everyone wants to get onto the DACA bandwagon". Trump tweeted at daybreak Tuesday.

"Mexico has the absolute power not to let these large "Caravans" of people enter their country", Trump tweeted.

In a flurry of Easter tweets, Trump reversed his February claim that Republicans haven't forgotten young immigrants brought to the USA illegally by their parents and were working hard to pass legislation regarding their temporary status. But she said the president's attacks on Mexico and threats about ending NAFTA are not helpful.

Trump said Mexico is doing practically nothing to stop people from coming from Mexico to the United States through the Southern Border.
