The United States President Donald Trump said on Tuesday that an immigration deal is possible and that could be done in two phases, addressing both young immigrants and border security using “bill of love,” followed by the comprehensive changes. On Tuesday, Trump had a meeting with Republican and Democratic lawmakers looking for solution on children brought in the United States illegally after he ended the Obama legislation for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
DACA program offered solution to more than 700,000 people from deportation giving the permission to work. The Associated Press reported that Trump gave the Congress to find a fix to the issue. All at the meeting, as the AP reports, the president, congressional Republicans and Democrats shared optimism 10 days before a deadline to reach a consensus on the budget and keep government open.
Trump met with a bipartisan group of 20 lawmakers during 55 minutes meeting and said his position “are going to be what the people in this room come up with.” Trump would insist on border wall construction, but Congress could further pursue with comprehensive immigration reform. Democrats and Republicans are set to resume negotiations on Wednesday, the AP reports.
