U.S. President Donald Trump has sent a list of hardline immigration reforms that further promises to deepen the spat between him and Democrats.
The plan which was delivered to leaders in Congress on Sunday evening, includes a crackdown on unaccompanied minors who enter the United States, many of them from Central America.
The White House wants the wish list to guide immigration reform in Congress and accompany a bill to replace DACA, an Obama-era program that protected nearly 800,000 Dreamers from deportation and also allowed them to secure work permits.
The inclusion of border wall funding in the list could prompt Democrats to accuse Trump of rowing back earlier suggestions that he would keep the wall issue separate from an initiative to help DACA recipients.
