The president both yesterday in the meeting and today made it very clear he wants Congress to act, to get this done. I’m hoping and I’m praying–and I don’t say that as cliché I am praying–that the president really cares about the Dreamers. Or knows that he should care about the Dreamers.
It appears as if President Trump is willing to compromise on immigration reform if his demands are made because, according to Senator Pelosi, Trump wants border security measures attached to any bill focused on the immigrants, but that a wall is not included. Senator Pelosi hopes that Congress will pass something to protect the nearly 800,000 young people who are losing their temporary legal status next year. President Trump’s decision to end the DACA program will not begin to take effect for half a year. At that point, recipients will begin to lose their status on a rolling basis and become eligible for deportation and they will also no longer be allowed to legally work. President Trump tweeted earlier today

Hopefully, Congress can come together and work something out that will appease all parties and people affected by the ending of the DACA program.
