Democrats say Trump agrees to work on immigration bill, wall in dispute

Democrats say Trump agrees to work on immigration bill, wall in dispute

Trump gave Congress six months to come up with a solution before the protections would end, although what he would actually do absent congressional action is uncertain.

During his presidential campaign and since, Trump has repeatedly promised to build a wall along the U.S. -Mexico border.

"But very importantly, what we want: We have to have a wall", Trump said.

Speaking in an AP Newsmaker interview, Ryan said he believes the president "made the right call" when he announced that he would give Congress six months to figure out what to do with former President Barack Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program before dismantling it. DACA has given almost 800,000 young people protection from deportation and the right to work legally in the country.

Ryan said that while he'd "love to have the Democrats supporting and working with us" on tax reform, he told reporters Republicans are prepared to act unilaterally.

Both Trump and the Democratic congressional leaders, Sen.

Democratic Representative Henry Cuellar, who attended a White House meeting with Trump earlier on Wednesday, told reporters the president said he would not insist on wall funding as part of a Dreamers bill, but would pursue it on other, future legislation.

There's been a lot of talk of "is the president denying that there's a deal?"

For their part, immigrant advocates and Latino lawmakers reacted cautiously, with several saying that any celebration would be premature.

In New York, activist Martin Batalla Vidal, who came to the US with his parents when he was 7, said he has taken college classes, does "meaningful" nursing home work and pays taxes. "But at the same time, I think it's only reasonable - it makes ideal common sense - that we deal with the problem that was the root cause of this, which is we do not have operational control of our borders", he said, adding: "This is a broken system that needs to be fixed".

"Move fast Congress!" the President said on Twitter. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., a consistent advocate of legislation to legalize many illegal immigrants.

Trump has appeared to embrace his newfound luster as a bipartisan deal-maker since a disaster-and-debt deal he struck with Pelosi and Schumer last week stunned Washington and garnered a stack of positive headlines. "He likes me, anyway".

House Speaker Paul Ryan is declining to say a tax overhaul Republicans are trying to write won't increase federal deficits.
