Boothe: Trump Must Have Mexican Border Wall or RAISE Act in DACA 'Deal'
Boothe reacted to Trump's meeting with Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), in which the Democratic leaders claimed a deal was made, or nearly made, on DACA and border security.
"What does border security mean to the Democratic Party?" Boothe asked, noting that Trump had already beefed up CBP and ICE's presence on the border.
She mentioned Trump's long-promised wall on the Mexican border, as well as Sens. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) and David Perdue's (R-Ga.) "RAISE Act."
The RAISE (or Reforming American Immigration for a Strong Economy) Act would establish a skills-based point system for prospective immigrants, replacing the permanent employment visa program.
It would also place "responsible limits" on permanent residency for refugees and prioritize immigration for those who are "best positioned to succeed in the United States."
"If [Trump] doesn't get one of those things in the immigration package, I think it's a failure and it's not a deal," Boothe said.
