Rep. Castro: ‘I’m Not Inclined to Trade’ DACA for Big, Long Border Wall Across the Border with Mexico
CASTRO: "First, I’m encouraged that President Trump and Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi and everybody else are getting together and meeting regularly. That’s a good thing because the government has been shut down for 20 days and the priority should be to get it reopened. It's also encouraging that folks are trying to bring forward ideas on how to reopen the government and find compromise. But two things. Number one, I have not seen any kind of serious offer from President Trump or from the Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, or Lindsey Graham. The second thing is that, like many Americans, I’m not inclined to trade the lives and futures of millions of DREAMers for a big, long border wall across the border with Mexico. You know, of course we want to listen to what they have to offer, but I’m not inclined to make that trade right now."
