Letters: ‘Dreamer’ promises

Re “Trump open to expanding Dreamer protection to 1.2 million despite campaign vow” (McClatchyDC, Jan., 23): President Donald Trump has made it clear, numerous times, that his support for the so called “Dreamers” to stay in America is tied to support for the border wall to help protect America from unrestricted access. Democrat Senate leader Chuck Schumer promised to support $25 billion for the border wall for Trump’s support of the Dreamers to stay. Now Schumer says he won’t. Does this mean that the Democrats have decided to dump the Dreamers? Does this mean the Democrats’ promise means nothing?
