“We can declare a national emergency,” Mr. Trump said. “We shouldn’t have to.”
Later, standing just above the Rio Grande with military vehicles and border agents as his backdrop, he said he would consider a compromise that would allow undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children, often known as Dreamers, to maintain legal status they lost when he ended the Obama-era program that protected them.
“I would like to do a much broader form of immigration,” Mr. Trump said. “We could help the Dreamers.”
This is the body text: If you happen to be at the annual Polar Bear Plunge at noon on New Year’s Day at East Hampton’s Main Beach, you will know Joan Tulp if you see her. She’s the octogenarian who has worn a tiara and tossed her mink coat to the ground in past years before running into the frigid water with East Hampton Village Mayor Paul F. Rickenbach Jr. and John Ryan Sr. (Mr. Ryan would be the white-haired gentleman with the plunger on his head, holding Ms. Tulp’s hand to steady themselves as they go.)
