President Donald Trump said Wednesday he is open to a path to citizenship for participants in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA).

"I just think the House is going to be more extremist about it than the Senate," said Grijalva. "The likelihood of it being sabotaged with extreme measures being added at the House level is certainly there."

Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell promised a vote on an immigration bill in February.
