President Trump bashed a bipartisan immigration proposal on Wednesday, raising fresh doubts about Congress’s ability to strike a deal to save protections for young immigrants living illegally in the U.S.
In an interview with Reuters, Trump called the Senate proposal “horrible” on border security and “very, very weak” on reforms to the legal immigration system.
“It’s the opposite of what I campaigned for,” Trump said.
Trump is positioning himself with conservatives in the Republican Party who say the bipartisan compromise falls well short of what is needed to fix the nation’s immigration system.
