Top Democrats and President Trump Reach Agreement on DACA

Top Democrats and President Trump Reach Agreement on DACA

FRESNO, Calif. -- An agreement may have been reached on DACA protecting immigrants brought to the United States as young children.

Top Democrats in the house and senate announced they reached the agreement with President Trump to protect the program and address border security.

House minority leader Nancy Pelosi and senate minority leader Chuck Schumer released a statement after wrapping up dinner with the president saying "we agreed to enshrine the protections of DACA into law quickly."
 Now a local political analyst and congressman are responding.
 
"This isn't amnesty. This is the right thing and this is doing the right thing so I think this is good news," Jim Costa (D) Fresno.

 "They don't like Trump as much as Trump doesn't like them. If they are willing to work together that is encouraging," said Don Larson.

Samuel Molina from Mi Familia Vota echoes those sentiments.

 "We are glad both sides are talking. It is good Trump, Pelosi and Schumer are talking about the future of immigration reform," said Samuel Molina.

In the meeting the Democrats and Trump also discussing border security. The democrats insist the plan does not include the construction of the wall on the Mexican border.

The White House quickly disputed that. Press Secretary Sanders tweeted "While democrats and border security were both discussed, excluding the wall was not agreed to."

Several members of Congress, both Democrats and Republicans, who attended the meeting at the White House spoke to reporters, saying they left with the impression Trump agreed to work on a deal for the wall separately.
