ANDERSON COOPER: Don't you think it is up to the Democrats to make some concessions here? Since they aren't in control of either chamber of Congress. I mean, Republicans do hold the cards
JORGE RAMOS: Well, the fact is that Republicans with this negotiation, they want to change the essence, I think, of the United States. I mean, do they really want to make America white again? Is that...is that the deal? What I've seen from the Democratic side, Anderson, and from talking with the Dreamers, is that they are willing to negotiate DACA for a few miles of wall, maybe 300, 350 miles of wall. That is as much as they can go. But to tell them that from now on, everything is going to change, that chain migration has to be stopped, in other words, that family reunification is no longer going to be the immigration principle that is going to guide us into this tolerant, diverse, multicultural, multiracial country...I don't see it. So the way I see it is- DACA for just a few miles of wall but nothing else.
