In his private briefings on his yet-to-be-released immigration plan, Jared Kushner has told people his plan will be "neutral" on immigration numbers, multiple administration and Hill sources familiar with the proposal tell Axios.

Why it matters: By neutral, Kushner says he means it will neither raise nor lower the overall number of legal immigrants coming into the U.S.

Jared Kushner, who is leading the White House "peace team," said at the TIME 100 conference in New York Tuesday that President Trump's peace plan will require “tough compromises” from both the Israelis and the Palestinians.

Why it matters: Kushner said the White House will start laying out the plan in June, after the Muslim month of Ramadan. The officials leading the White House effort have begun to speak more publicly about the plan, but still aren’t offering any details.
