Ivanka Trump on Monday called for a longterm Congressional fix to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program that President Donald Trump made a decision to end in September.

Indeed, Democratic leaders rejected the demands Sunday, saying it shows the administration "can't be serious about compromise". It sets out the policies that the White House wants to be part of any immigration deal.

Despite the vagueness, Democrats portrayed that as a capitulation to Trump and a move toward a misguided, costly and relatively ineffective approach to border security.

One source familiar with the deliberations described the policies last week as a "wish list" of Trump's senior policy adviser Stephen Miller, an immigration hard-liner and former Senate staffer for Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
