WATCH: Pelosi addresses DACA, deal with Trump
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California detailed her meeting with President Donald Trump on Wednesday, including a deal he made with Democrats to pass Harvey aid and raise the country’s borrowing limit.
Pelosi also touched on DACA, saying that in her meeting with the president and leaders of both chambers of Congress “we made it clear the DREAM Act must come to the floor as soon as possible and we will not rest until we get that done.”
The Associated Press reported Thursday morning that Pelosi had urged the president to make clear on Twitter that DACA recipients would be safe from deportation during the six months he’s given Congress to come up with a solution. Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the Trump administration would scale back the program, and would cease issuing permits as of March 5, 2018.
