Trump Backs Citizenship Path For 'Dreamers' If Border Wall Is Funded
The administration has a few other immigration concessions it wants as well.
President Donald Trump says he's willing to provide a pathway to citizenship for 1.8 million young undocumented immigrants.
In a call with Republican staffers on Capitol Hill, the White House outlined its immigration reform plan. One White House official called the proposal a "dramatic concession."
But Democrats would also likely have to make some dramatic concessions of their own. For one, the plan would give the White House a $25 billion trust fund for Trump's so-called border wall and other infrastructure.
And Congress would have to modify family reunification policies, end the diversity visa lottery program, and allow for faster deportation of immigrants from countries not on the U.S. border.
