WASHINGTON (AP) — House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi says she trusts President Donald Trump to keep his word and support legislation to protect from deportation young immigrants living in the U.S. illegally who came here as children.
Pelosi and Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer have said they had an agreement with Trump to protect those immigrants while also bolstering border security — as long as his long-promised wall with Mexico is addressed separately.
Republicans in Congress insist there isn’t an actual deal, though Trump has said the two sides were “fairly close.”
Pelosi tells NBC’s “Meet the Press” — “I trust him on it.” She says she remains concerned about what Trump might come up with on border security.
Pelosi says she expects Congress to act before Christmas.
