The White House said on Wednesday that it will unveil a legislative framework on immigration next week.

The announcement came after lawmakers resumed negotiations on the fate of young immigrants brought to the country illegally as children, known as Dreamers.

“The White House will release a legislative framework on Monday that represents a compromise that members of both parties can support,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders was quoted as saying.

The framework aims to secure the border and close legal loopholes, end extended-family chain migration, cancel the visa lottery, and provide a permanent solution on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), a programme that prevent Dreamers from deportation.

“After decades of inaction by Congress, it’s time we work together to solve this issue once and for all. The American people deserve no less,” the statement said.
