Democratic leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer announced that they've reached an agreement with President Trump to address the fate of undocumented immigrants who were brought to the U.S.

as children under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA).

Notably, the leading Democrats said they agreed to finalize a package, "excluding the wall."

"We agreed to enshrine the protections of DACA into law quickly, and to work out a package of border security, excluding the wall, that's acceptable to both sides," the two leaders said in a joint statement after their dinner with Mr. Trump on Wednesday evening.

But the White House did not mention any such deal excluding a border wall in its account from an anonymous official, and White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders disputed the Democrats' version of events. The Trump administration announced the end of DACA earlier this month, and Mr. Trump has given Congress six months to act.

"President Donald Trump had a constructive working dinner with Senate and House Minority Leaders, Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi as well as administration officials to discuss policy and legislative priorities," a White House official said in a statement.
