President Trump says we are in the middle of “a new American moment.”
His state of the union address last night touted the achievements of his first year in office.
The president asked congress for unity, and said he’s willing to reach across the aisle to make an immigration deal that ensures the safety of Americans.
The president is offering a pathway to citizenship for one point eight million dreamers — immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally as children. In exchange, he wants money for a border wall, an end to the immigrant visa lottery, and changes to family-based immigration rules.
The president also said the U.S. “must be ready” to respond to threats from countries such as North Korea.
