The biggest argument in the current debate over immigration reform is what to do with the DACA program. After Donald Trump make a surprising comment that he would be open to allowing DREAMers the ability to obtain citizenship, Breitbart News was not happy with the president.

Breitbart on Trump

It was just last Friday when the United States government shut down for the first time in almost five years. Unlike the previous shutdown which was based around Republican opposition to the Affordable Care Act, the current issue stems from immigration. Republicans are pushing for increased funding for Border Security, including $25 billion for a southern border wall.

For the Democratic Party, they hope to extend and improve the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) to allow illegal immigrants who were brought to the United States as children the ability to stay in the country.

Once the government shutdown began, it took almost 72 hours before both sides were able to reach an agreement on a short-term funding bill to keep the government open until February 8. The issue was brought up with Donald Trump who spoke to reporters on Wednesday night and make controversial comments about DACA, which didn't go over well with Breitbart News, as reported by The Hill on January 24.

Trump's move

Prior to boarding Air Force One and heading off to Switzerland to participate in the World Economic Forum, Donald Trump spoke to reporters and insisted that DREAMers will have nothing to worry about. "Tell them not to worry. We are going to solve the problem," Trump said. Trump elaborated further, saying that "At some point in the future, over a period of 10 to 12 years" DREAMers will get to "morph" into citizens.

Breitbart backlash

In response to Donald Trump's remarks about DACA and allowing DREAMers to become citizens, the right-wing Breitbart News took a rare shot at the president.

The publication ran an article titled "Immigration shock: Amnesty Don suggests citizenship for illegal aliens." Not long after the article was published, it was edited to use softer language, titling the piece, "Trump Says He’s Open to U.S. Citizenship for DACA Illegal Aliens." Trump's announcement on DACA comes after Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed earlier in the day that the White House was preparing to release a proposal on immigration that they hope could appeal to both Democrats and Republicans, though not further details are known as of press time.
