On Tuesday at the White House, President Trump held a meeting with Republican and Democratic members of Congress to discuss bipartisan plans for immigration reform. About 55 minutes of the meeting were open to the press, and several outlets posted live streams.

Throughout the meeting, Trump emphasized a bipartisan solution for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients, but said that any bipartisan solution should include an emphasis on border security. He also said that once a DACA solution is completed, Congress should move on to comprehensive immigration reform.

“A clean DACA bill to me is to take care of the 800,000 people,” he said. “We take care of that, and we also take care of security. And then we can go to comprehensive [immigration reform] later on,” Trump said.

About two hours after the meeting, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked about what comprehensive immigration reform meant for President Trump:
