As President Trump prepared to address a Republican retreat in West Virginia Thursday, he took to Twitter first thing in the morning to hammer Democrats over the ‘Dreamers’ again.

‘March 5th is rapidly approaching and the Democrats are doing nothing about DACA,’ Trump said. ‘They Resist, Blame, Complain and Obstruct – and do nothing.’

‘Start pushing Nancy Pelosi and the Dems to work out a DACA fix, NOW!’ the president urged.

Trump also previewed his trip, saying he was heading to ‘beautiful’ West Virginia, where he would be meeting with the ‘great members of the Republican Party.’

‘Will be planning Infrastructure and discussing Immigration and DACA, not easy when we have no support from the Democrats,’ Trump said, articulating his plans for the retreat, taking place at the luxury retreat, the Greenbrier.

In early September, President Trump’s Justice Department announced the phasing out of the DACA program, which stands for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, an Obama-era ordered that allowed the so-called ‘Dreamers,’ undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. as children, to remain.

DACA permits would expire March 5, as Trump kicked the can to Congress to figure out a fix.

Since then, the plight of the ‘Dreamers’ has been central to the drama on Capitol Hill.

Last month, the president rejected a bipartisan proposal from a group of centrist senators, which led to a three-day government shutdown.

He and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer also had a back-and-forth over DACA and the president’s proposed border wall, but when negotiations broke down the White House quickly dubbed the government’s closure the ‘Schumer shutdown.’
