The right cautions Trump not to give away the store with DACA deal


Members of Congress are working on a program to address the future of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. Will the GOP be better served to focus on a wall along the country’s southern border, or reforming chain migration? A roundup of editorials Friday looks at DACA, the wall and immigration reform.

Opinions from the right:

1. If Trump will deal, Dems should, too
 

From The Detroit News: The Democrats would be foolish to pass by the door Trump has opened to immigration reform.

2. The GOP must win a better deal on DACA
 

From the National Review: Deal with DACA, but first tackle chain migration and E-Verify.

3. Mr. Trump, fund, start, and finish the wall before you tackle DACA 
 

From Fox News: It’s the wall we need to have before other immigration measures are dealt with.
