Multiple Reports Say Trump Is Open to ‘Compromise’ Immigration Legislation



There are a lot of reports coming out this afternoon — following a White House luncheon with news anchors — about how President Trump is open to a comprehensive immigration bill with compromise on both sides:

CNN quotes a senior administration official as saying the following:

The President believes that the nation is now in a position where it can pass immigration legislation, the senior administration official said, with the need to have “a softening on both sides. There’s got to be a coming together”…

“It has to be a negotiation,” the official said, arguing that the bill theoretically could make people on both the “far right” and “far left” happy.

“It could be good for everyone,” the senior administration official said. “People are exhausted” from debating the topic.

Trump will almost certainly address immigration during his address to a joint session of Congress tonight, given that his guests include families of people killed by illegal immigrants.

UPDATE –– 6:16 pm ET: It turns out the above “the time is right” quote came from none other than President Trump himself:
