Pelosi: I Won’t Support Wall Funding in Exchange for DACA Deal

Thursday during her weekly press briefing, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said she would not agree to fund President Donald Trump’s proposed border wall on the U.S.-Mexico border in exchange for a permanent fix for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

Asking about a deal that might avoid a government shutdown, a reporter said, “Would you be willing to support some degree of wall funding if you got a permanent bona fide solution on DACA?”

Pelosi replied, “No.”

She added, “Because they are two different subjects.”
