Trump discusses DACA with Democrats
Sept. 14, 2017
After meeting with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-New York) and House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-California), President Donald Trump announced he is willing to work with Congress on a resolution for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
Chris Herstam, a public affairs consultant at Lewis Roca Rothgerber Christie, believes the President’s willingness may be to further his own agenda regarding border security.
“It’s not a deal, it’s an agreement,” Herstam said.
A final agreement on DACA has yet to be made, though there is optimism from supporters that the program will stay.
“The president needs a win,” said Chuck Coughlin, president of Highground Public Affairs Consultants. “And we know Arizona voters are supportive of a DACA program.”
