Trump's immigration plan includes path to citizenship, he says
President Trump said Wednesday the White House immigration plan would let protections for younger immigrants "morph into" citizenship in 10–12 years.
"If [Dreamers] do a great job, I think it's a nice thing to have the incentive of, after a period of years, being able to become a citizen."
The backdrop: The White House will roll out a framework for what Trump is looking for in an immigration bill on Monday. Republicans and Democrats in Congress are struggling to strike a deal balancing a legislative fix for Dreamers and Trump's border security priorities, which include funding for a wall.
