...I agree the man behind the curtain is not negotiating in good faith. Until he does, why negotiate with him at all. I have no issues going back to 25 Billion in exchange for DACA.
But with one caveat.
No coming back for more money. Find a way to get great border security with that. That is what a company would do in charting its future. More from less.
Two issues I have with the wall:
I do not believe it can be built for even 25 billion. I think more like 100 billion or more. Even then, assuming it were build, I absolutely do not believe it will work.
Let's ask the experts to tell us how to stop illegal immigration. Let's stop with stupid: presupposing that a wall is the best option. It is not and the experts have made that abundantly clear.
Our President is engaged in a stunt. He got ocgreg to bite. The country has a number of like minded people who swallow slogans whole.
Let's go back to the Reagan era for a bill already passed. E-verify with onerous fines for firms who do not comply. Make it painful, jail time for top executives.
The Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 provided amnesty for 3 million illegal immigrants, in return for increased border security and penalties for companies "knowingly" hiring illegal immigrants.
The bipartisan Simpson-Mazzoli bill contained three promises:
1. The government would make a concerted effort to control the borders.
2. An effective employer verification program would ensure that only legal workers were hired.
3. One-time amnesty would be granted for people illegally in the United States.
All three promises were broken. The government has made no serious effort to control our borders. Employers continue knowingly to hire illegal immigrants without any real fear of punishment.

Let's do what we have already agreed to do. Let's stop with stupid.
