The Trump administration would support legislation allowing illegal immigrants who came to the United States as children to gain lawful permanent status and eventually citizenship, a Department of Homeland Security official said in testimony to Congress on Tuesday.The Trump administration last month ended the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy, which began in 2012 under former President Barack Obama and offered nearly 800,000 young people who came to the United States illegally as children protection from deportation and the right to work legally in the United States.Pelosi and Schumer described their understanding with the president differently, saying that Trump had embraced the provisions of a bipartisan proposal called the Dream Act that would grant permanent legal resident status to Dreamers who qualify, and eventually, a pathway to U.S. citizenship.On Tuesday, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, who was among a group of Republicans who had dinner with Trump on Monday, was asked whether the president's tentative agreement with Schumer and Pelosi was still live.
