  On October 8, U.S. President Donald J. Trump's administration sent Congress a list of <a href="https://apnews.com/863569966ee443e7b148ff8e7fd03641/Trump-links-border-wall,-green-card-overhaul-to-DACA">hard-line immigration priorities</a> that would have to be met in exchange for extending protection from deportation for up to 800,000 young immigrants, known as Dreamers. Many were illegally brought into the U.S. as children.
  Trump's stipulations fall into <a href="http://www.politico.com/f/?id=0000015e-fe3b-d01e-a35e-ff7f6a050001">three main categories</a> – border security, interior enforcement, and a merit-based immigration system – and include hiring an additional 10,000 immigration officers, deporting unaccompanied minors, and funding and completing a controversial southern border wall with Mexico.

  Many of Trump's demands have been previously ruled out by Democrats and threaten to derail fledgling bipartisan negotiations over legislation aimed at protecting Dreamers. Under former president Barack Obama's Deferred Actions for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) programme, which was established in June 2012, Dreamers were given a two-year reprieve from deportation and became eligible for work permits.
  The Trump administration rescinded the policy in <a href="https://www.dhs.gov/news/2017/09/05/memorandum-rescission-daca">September 2017</a> and gave Congress <a href="https://www.nytimes.com/2017/09/05/us/politics/trump-daca-dreamers-immigration.html?_r=0">six months</a> to pass a replacement before the programme begins to wind down.
