WASHINGTON - House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi says President Donald Trump supports and would sign into law legislation that offers a path to legalization for immigrants brought to the country as children and living here illegally.
The California Democrat told journalists that Trump signaled his backing in a White House meeting with congressional leaders on Wednesday and in conversation with her Thursday.
Pelosi says: "Obviously it has to be bipartisan; the president said he supports that, he would sign it, but we have to get it passed and that's a high priority."
Trump is ending the Obama-era program that gave nearly 800,000 immigrants temporary work permits and deportation protections. He gave Congress six months to come up with an alternative.
