Trump: Any immigration plan without border wall ‘waste of time’

Trump has earlier reaffirmed that he favours an immigration system which is fair, equitable and based on merit instead of visa lottery, a mechanism he described as “terrible”.

Any congressional immigration plan that does not provide for his long-promised wall along the US-Mexico border ‘is a total waste of time,’ US President Donald Trump said on Monday as two top senators planned to unveil a bipartisan compromise plan.

“Any deal on DACA that does not include STRONG border security and the desperately needed WALL is a total waste of time. March 5th is rapidly approaching and the Dems seem not to care about DACA. Make a deal!” Trump wrote on Twitter.
