House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer, D-Md., said Thursday that he doesn't believe a final deal on immigration was reached between President Trump and Democratic leaders last night, and said it's more like a blueprint for getting a deal.
"I wouldn't call it a deal," he said on MSNBC. "What I would say is it's a plan to get to a deal."
He said his understanding of the agreement was that Congress would pass legislation protecting illegal immigrants who entered the U.S. as children.
Hoyer said part of the bill would also include "enhanced security at the border," and said Democrats favor a bill requiring the government to develop a border security plan.
He also said his understanding is that funding for the border wall would not be part of this bill, although Trump was still pushing for that elsewhere.
"While the wall continues to be a priority of the president, he does not necessarily take the position that it has to be in this bill," he said.
