She declined to provide details about what would be included in the framework, including whether it would provide a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as children, known as Dreamers, signaling only that it will represent "a compromise that members of both parties can support".

Trump has given Congress until March to come up with a plan to protect the almost 700,000 young people who had been protected from deportation and given the right to work legally in the country under the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA.
Trump said he would also suggest US$5 billion for border security and would seek to curb family sponsorship of immigrants and the visa lottery system in his framework.
Since the partial government shutdown last weekend, Democrats and some Republicans say they are committed to finding a way to shield from deportation the estimated 800,000 young immigrants the program protects.
With the clock ticking on the reprieve from a government shutdown, President Trump is entering the fray on immigration with his own "legislative framework" for Congress to consider and adopt before the February 8 deadline.

Asked what advice her father, a former Southern Baptist pastor, gave her when she was named as White House press secretary, Sanders said it was the same advice he has given her throughout her life. Trump announced he was ending DACA past year.
In October past year, the Trump outlined his priorities for sweeping immigration reform in exchange for giving legal status to the nearly 700,000 DACA recipients.
"We certainly support full transparency", Sanders replied when asked if the White House supported efforts to release the document.
