>> Thousands of new immigration officers, a crackdown on border security, and the wall with Mexico. Just some of what Donald Trump is asking for in a new immigration wishlist presented to Congress on Sunday. Trump wants the ideas included in any immigration deal as Congress mulls the future. Of nearly 800,000 young people known as Dreamers, brought illegally to the US as children.

But while the list is likely to fire up the President's nationalist base, White House correspondent, Jeff Mason says, for Democrats it's a non starter.>> Certainly, the wall is a big thing that they will object to, they've objected to that since President Trump advocated for that as a presidential candidate.

He's also asking for a lot of money for increased border and security enforcement, 10,000 new border security officers for example. Where does that money come from? Those are all things that Democrats will probably be asking about.>> Trump ended the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals or DACA program last month.

Leaving hundreds of thousands of young undocumented immigrants in limbo. He's promised to help protect the so-called Dreamers, giving congress six months to come up with a fix. But analysts say the new list will make it tough to strike a deal that both sides can agree on. With provisions to crack down on the flow of unaccompanied minors to the US.

And deny federal grants to so-called sanctuary cities that protect some illegal immigrants.>> The list was put together based on feedback from many agencies that are connected to immigration. But it certainly reflects the more hardline views of Stephen Miller who was one of President Trump's top advisors. And who has a very conservative right-leaning view about immigration and immigration rules.

>> Trump has failed to deliver even a single major legislative win after nine months in office. Analysts say his immigration list isn't likely to get him any closer to victory, meaning Dreamers across the US are facing an increasingly uncertain future.
