Lawmakers agree on four goals on immigration in talks with President Trump


President Trump brought a group of 20 members of Congress from both parties for a meeting at the White House on border security and the legal status of children of illegal immigrants. They agreed on four goals during the immigration talks.

Lawmakers who met with President Trump on Tuesday to discuss immigration say they have narrowed the scope of a potential deal, and said that work has left them optimistic that a bill can be written and passed.

“I thought it was a very productive meeting in terms of setting up the parameters of the negotiations, the parameters of the discussions,” said Sen. Cory Gardner, R-Colo, after the meeting. “I leave the meeting under the impression the four parameters of the negotiations have been agreed to.”

A group of 20 Democrats and Republicans met with Trump to begin hashing out a bipartisan deal to protect so-called Dreamers who arrived in the U.S. illegally as children, in exchange for new border security and interior immigration reform measures.
