Whether he ends DACA or builds his horrendous wall, Trump's motives are clear: Make the entry way into the US narrower for non-white immigrants.
In July, House Republicans allocated $1.6 billion in the 2018 budget to build or replace 74 miles of fencing in San Diego and south Texas. "It's only 700 or 800 miles total, some of that replacement".
That's more than $21 million per mile, or $4,095 per foot of fence.
The administration's plan, per the document, is to almost double the amount of fencing along the border, from 654 miles now to around 1,000 in total.
Trump's border wall, which formed a key pillar of his 2016 presidential campaign, has encountered much opposition, particularly over the growing cost and the timeline of construction.
"We all want DACA to happen, but we also want great security for our country", Trump said.
"If Trump gets to declare a victory, that's fine for me as long as people are protected", Gallego added. Across the Southwest, border officers are stopping more than 1,000 people a day. But he sees potential compromise with Trump in a "levy wall" - mounds of dirt covered in concrete that help prevent flooding.

She dedicated her win to women who paved the way in the past, and the writer Margaret Atwood , who was absent due to illness. Netflix, meanwhile, scooped up a best actor in a TV musical/comedy thanks to Aziz Ansari's performance in Master of None .
Before he does, Trump will attempt to make a deal with Democrats over DACA and border security. Democrats and some Republicans are pushing to have it preserved. Isn't it interesting that none of the legislators who want to pass DACA want a wall on our southern border. "The general consensus is that a wall is not necessary", Hirono said.
Congress must work quickly, however, to approve a funding plan by January 19 to avoid a government shutdown. Now those same leaders are showing us once again that it is still not too late for them to cost the country its last chance to once more achieve greatness. If there's no agreement, and he does not extend the deadline, Dreamers would lose their protections from deportation on that date.
Trump wants $18billion in border wall funding over 10 years to make a deal to protect DACA recipients.
But shortly after his dramatic announcement that, unlike previous presidents, he is doing just that, President Trump did exactly what his all his predecessors had done - he signed the waiver of action, allowed by law, delaying the move for another six months.
"We went into DACA and how we're going to do it, and we hope that we're going be able to work out an arrangement with the Democrats".
The White House's other conditions are ending "chain migration" and the diversity lottery program.
House Speaker Paul Ryan said rebuilding the nation's infrastructure and bolstering the military would be priorities this year, as well as ensuring "that everyone enjoys the economic growth that's to come".
"Once you're a citizen, you should have the full rights of citizenship", Gallego said.
