President Trump Says He'll Try Again On DACA Revocation

President Trump signaled Friday that he will once again move to cancel the Obama-era DACA deportation amnesty, though this time he said he’ll check all the proper procedural boxes.
His announcement came a day after the Supreme Court shot down his first revocation attempt from 2017, saying that while he has the power to revoke the program, his team didn’t do enough to take into account the suffering that would fall on 650,000 illegal immigrant “Dreamers” who are enrolled in the program.
Mr. Trump, on Twitter, said the high court “punted” in sending the matter back for reconsideration, and said his administration will comply by issuing an updated revocation.
“We will be submitting enhanced papers shortly in order to properly fulfil[sic] the Supreme Court’s ruling & request of yesterday,” he wrote.

He said he’s been trying to strike a deal with congressional Democrats to give DACA recipients a more permanent legal status, but said they’ve refused to negotiate with him. He has sought to couple a pathway to citizenship for Dreamers with border wall funding and restrictions on legal immigration, but Democrats say his offer on Dreamers is too stingy and his other asks are too much.
“They have abandoned DACA,” the president said. “Based on the decision the Dems can’t make DACA citizens. They gained nothing!”
