>> A lot of people are coming in because they wanna take advantage of DACA. We had a great chance, the Democrats blew it.>> President Donald Trump taking time out on Easter Sunday to threaten to cancel any deal, legalizing the status of the so-called Dreamers, the young immigrants brought to the US illegally as children, who've been at the heart of political wrangling between Democrats and Republicans.
00:00:23
Trump was responding to reporters who asked him about a Sunday morning tweetstorm, in which he said a deal is now off. Reporter Varaly Vocavichi says Trump was apparently responding to a news report he saw Easter morning.>> He must have reacted to recent reports including one that aired this morning on Fox and Friends that talked about this in a group of mainly refugees that are kinda crossing through Mexico and aiming to head to the US border.
00:00:54
And many of these migrants in this group are potentially seeking asylum in the United States.>> More than 1,000 would-be migrants have passed through southern Mexico in recent days in a so-called refugee caravan organized by a US-based advocacy group.>> Trump is suggesting that Mexico is weak because Mexico can potentially let through these migrants into the United States.
00:01:16
>> Mexico has got to help us at the border.>> Trump threatened to punish Mexico by killing the North American Free Trade Agreement. The US, Mexico and Canada are currently in the midst of renegotiating NAFTA.>> We've heard different things from the US trade representative, who said that actually, negotiations on NAFTA were improving, with more favorable conditions for the United States.
00:01:40
It's unclear what impact this will have. But clearly, he wants to ruffle a lot of feathers both in Congress and with the Mexican government.>> Trump moved to end DACA in September. The program was started by President Obama in 2012 and shielded the young immigrants from deportation, and gave them work permits.
00:01:59
Trump has said he was open to brokering a deal with Democrats in exchange for funding to build the US-Mexico border wall. But the two sides fail to reach an agreement as part of a recent omnibus spending bill.
