WASHINGTON (AP) – Democratic Congress leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi have announced a deal with President Donald Trump to protect young immigrants, and it will include border security but no wall.

It would enshrine protections for the nearly 800,000 immigrants who benefited from a program created by former President Barack Obama that Trump has announced he is ending.

The agreement was announced in a joint statement from House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York, following a dinner the pair had with Trump at the White House.

It marks the second time in two weeks that Trump has bypassed Republicans to deal with Pelosi and Schumer.
