WASHINGTON, DC – House Democratic Whip Steny H. Hoyer (D-MD) released the following statement today regarding Monday morning’s White House immigration meeting and the statement issued by the White House on that meeting:

“Today’s meeting at the White House was a positive step forward in that everyone in the room agreed that we must take action on DACA immediately; however, the statement issued by the White House is inaccurate. Republicans put forward their four priority areas, but our priority remains the same: ensuring that DREAMers can remain in the only country they’ve ever called home. I was pleased that the President agreed that we need to address DACA now, and I hope that we can come together to quickly reach an agreement on legislation that will pass the House and Senate and be signed into law.”
