President Donald Trump appeared eager to make a deal on DACA, urging Republicans and Democrats to come together.
Republicans want to make a deal and Democrats say they want to make a deal,” Trump wrote on Twitter.
In a concession to Democrats, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is set to begin a debate on the issue this week.
One Senate aide described to Axios the debate as a chance for senators to “put your big boy and big girl pants on, and put your ideas on the floor for a vote.”
On Monday, Trump urged Democrats to concede on funding border security and closing legal loopholes important to the president.
Negotiations on DACA have begun. Republicans want to make a deal and Democrats say they want to make a deal. Wouldn’t it be great if we could finally, after so many years, solve the DACA puzzle. This will be our last chance, there will never be another opportunity! March 5th.
