Lawmakers could run into a problem though since Democrats may want to attach a legislative solution for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program for so-called "Dreamers" but President Trump has said recently he would only agree to such legislation only if it includes border wall funding.

The president argued for a two-phase immigration reform that starts with a bill to legalize DACA recipients and provide some border wall, an end to chain migration, and an end to the visa lottery.

Democrats want protections for Dreamers under DACA [[ DAH-kuh ]].

Trump last year ended a program championed by former president Barack Obama that protected from deportation 690,000 or more young immigrants who years ago were brought illegally into the U.S.by their parents. Trump announced plans to repeal DACA past year and challenged Congress to craft a legislative reform package.

Following the meeting, Durbin said he was pleased by the "sense of urgency" by the participants and that they "narrowed down the list of what they are going to discuss in the first phase of immigration, the DACA phase, to border security, chain migration and the diversity visa".

Trump has been anything but clear on what he'll accept, even on his signature wall.

Schumer says the meeting "boded well", but Trump needs to follow up.

President Donald Trump appeared to contradict himself multiple times in a meeting on immigration with a bipartisan group of lawmakers Tuesday - a reflection of growing frustration from Capitol Hill about the lack of direction from the White House on the issue.

WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump opened up the curtain of Washington negotiations as he invited the press to stay for almost an hour and broadcast a Cabinet Room meeting with Democratic and Republican lawmakers Wednesday. A Republican source in the room told CNN that lawmakers didn't know the press would be in the White House meeting for so long.

Grassley said that if they do not have good faith negotiations and get to an agreement within days, they will have to bring up "either the House bill or the bill that some of [them] ... introduced in the United States Senate".

"If you don't have the wall, you don't have security", Trump told the lawmakers. "And we are going to build the wall", the president said Monday at an event in Knoxville, Tennessee.

Trump said he would "take the heat" if lawmakers wanted to move toward comprehensive immigration reform, saying they were "not that far away" from it. "So that's where the negotiations are taking place". But in the meeting he indicated a willingness to compromise with Democrats, whose votes are needed in the narrowly divided Senate.

"But it also has to be a bill where we're able to secure our border". Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., one of the attendees.
