News has broke that President Trump’s dinner late Wednesday night with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has lead to an agreement for full amnesty for DACA families without any funding for the wall, but with an agreement for a vague increase in ‘border security’ funding. This would essentially be a concession to complete amnesty with no real crack down on illegal immigration or significant funding for a wall.
This would be the biggest betrayal since George H Bush raised taxes.
A person briefed on the meeting – the President & the leaders agreed to pair the DREAM Act with some border security, excluding the wall.

Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer released a statement after their dinner with Trump proclaiming that they had come to an agreement on DACA amnesty with no money for a border wall:
We had a very productive meeting at the White House with the President. The discussion focused on DACA. We agreed to enshrine the protections of DACA into law quickly, and to work out a package of border security, excluding the wall, that’s acceptable to both sides.
A White House statement said:
President Donald Trump had a constructive working dinner with Senate and House Minority Leaders, Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi as well as Administration officials to discuss policy and legislative priorities. These topics included tax reform, border security, DACA, infrastructure and trade. This is a positive step toward the President’s strong commitment to bipartisan solutions for the issues most important to all Americans. The Administration looks forward to continuing these conversations with leadership on both sides of the aisle.
Chuck Schumer’s spoke’s person said after the meeting the group understood that Trump would not require wall funding as part of this deal:
The President made clear he would continue pushing the wall, just not as part of this agreement. https://t.co/KD1SdLAnIF

If the White House thinks they can pass DACA Amnesty and expect the democrats to include wall funding in ‘another bill’ then they are complete idiots or delusional.
Short says WH is not committed to including border wall $ in DACA legislation if they feel "confident" it will be included in another bill.
