Shortly after speaking with President Trump, Speaker Paul RyanPaul RyanTrump, Dem leaders reach agreement on young immigrants Trump steps up courtship of Dems Lawmakers huddle on replacing Dreamer legislation MORE (R-Wis.) said Thursday there is still "no agreement" with Democrats on how to help thousands of immigrants brought to the US illegally as children.

Speaking in an AP Newsmaker interview, Ryan said he believes the president "made the right call" when he announced he would give Congress six months to figure out what to do with former President Barack Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program before dismantling it. DACA has given almost 800,000 young people protection from deportation and the right to work legally in the country.

With the exception of Texas, those states are overwhelmingly represented by Democrats, but the handful of Republicans, mainly in the House, are threatening a revolt if the GOP tax plan is balanced on their constituents. "I'm hopeful we can bring both sides together".

In White House meetings with top Democrats in recent days, Trump has shown a new willingness to deal with the opposition. Tax cuts in the works could add hundreds of billions of dollars to the debt while bipartisan pressure for more money for defense, infrastructure and domestic agencies could mean nearly $100 billion in additional spending next year alone.

Now, with Republican President Trump pressing for politically popular tax cuts and billions more for the military, few in the GOP are complaining about the nation's soaring debt.

However, Trump has not announced a tax package so far during his eight months in office, but his administration looks to achieve its first legislative victory to pass a reform package in the near future.

Ryan says that window should give time for Congress to act. Some of his fellow Republicans have been clamoring for more details on the evolving tax plan before they are willing to advance the budget. Trump later tweeted there was no deal, but defended seeking a protection of DACA recipients with "massive border security". It remains unclear exactly what Trump meant, but indicates he could push controversial legal immigration overhauls or restrictions or limit protected DACA recipients' abilities to sponsor family members - all of which could jeopardize any agreement with Democrats.
