Trump will meet with House Republicans to talk immigration Tuesday

President Trump will meet with House Republicans Tuesday evening to discuss immigration reform legislation. At issue is a compromise immigration bill that would fund Trump's promised border wall, impose new limits on immigration, formalize protections for young immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally as children (those previously protected from deportation by the Obama administration's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals [DACA] program), and end the Trump administration's policy of separating migrant families at the border.

This is the more moderate of the two bills proposed by the House GOP, both of which are due for a vote later this week. Trump signaled Friday morning he would not support the moderate plan, but the White House later said that was a misunderstanding.

If Trump does endorse the protections for DACA recipients, that would mark a major reversal from his April declaration that DACA "is dead."
