LISTEN: Trump thinks Congress will come up with DACA fix
President Donald Trump says he believes Congress will come up with a legislative fix for immigrants living in the U.S. illegally who were brought here as children.
Trump on Tuesday suspended a program for these immigrants and gave lawmakers six months to resolve their status.
Trump told reporters traveling with him that he’d like to see a permanent deal and that he thinks it will happen. He predicted having great support from both sides of Congress.
Trump said in a tweet late Tuesday that he would “revisit” the issue if Congress blew its six-month deadline. He said Wednesday that revisiting the issue may be unnecessary because “Congress really wants to do this.”
He says the issue was discussed during an Oval Office meeting with top Republican and Democratic congressional leaders.
