Why is the left ditching the DACA compromise?

It looks like a plan that would have allowed “Dreamers” to stay in the United States is off the table for the moment. Why are Democrats backing away from a compromise that would help those under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program? A roundup of editorials Thursday takes a look at the issue.

Opinions from the right:

1. Here’s why Democrats are sabotaging the DACA compromise

From The Daily Caller: Why are the Democrats refusing to compromise on DACA? Because the politics of such a deal would cost them way too much.

2.  Democrats don't actually want a DACA compromise

From The Federalist: Democrats have no intention of agreeing to a deal that will help the president. They never did.

3. You think Democrats want to fix immigration? Dream on!

Washington Examiner: Why would Democrats give up an issue they can use against Republicans in the midterm elections?
