President Donald Trump has issued his demands to Congress for a deal to protect young illegal immigrants known as ‘Dreamers’, insisting that the legislature fund a border wall and overhaul the green-card system to end chain migration.

Trump send the list of demands to Congressional leaders on Sunday, setting the stage for contentious legislative negotiations that Democrats have threatened to derail over his proposals.

Some 800,000 young illegal immigrants had been granted a reprieve from deportation and the ability to work legally in the country under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program, which Trump ended last month.

In exchange for extending that protection, Trump is now asking Congress for the drastic reforms, many of which Democrats have said are explicitly off the table.

The proposals will likely assuage immigration hardliners among Trump’s base, many of whom were shocked last month after he appeared to be coming to a compromise with Democrats in Congress to extend DACA without conditions.
