Trump says citizenship for Dreams is possible

 article about trump holds dreamers hostage
Trump is now agreeing that young immigrants brought to United States as children should have a pathway to citizenship. Or so one might think. As with everything else in case of this guy, there's a catch, or $25 billion plus some. As Superbious reports, Trump has given Dems a ransom note.

Trump said that he'd give them a path to citizenship "Over a period of 10 to 12 years." He said that they would only get if if they work hard. But of course, that's not enough. For the hard work of Dreamers to actually matter, he's demanding $25 billion to be put into a trust fund for his big, great wall. And also $5 billion for additional security measures on the border.

Trump's offer to give the Dreamers a path to citizenship is non-negotiable, or to be exact, his offer is only valid if his demands are met. White House officials say the offer is "extremely generous." Not many other people agree with that, of course.

Additionally Trump also demands crackdown on illegal immigrants as well as new restrictions on legal immigration for extended family members. And shutting down the Green Card lottery.

While according to the White House this is the bill Orange would sign, there's little chance he would be given the opportunity to do that.

Kevin Appleby from Center for Migration Studies said that "It is shameful that the White House is holding these youth hostage in exchange for their extreme immigration agenda."
