In September, Trump rescinded the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, the Obama-era program designed to protect immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally as children, now known as Dreamers.

Lawmakers have been battling to come to an agreement on immigration that would fulfill the Trump administration’s border security wishes while protecting Dreamers through legislation.

Trump is expected to address immigration during his speech Tuesday. Earlier this month, the White House announced framework that would include a pathway to citizenship for nearly 2 million immigrants as well as funding for Trump’s border wall and new legal immigration limits.
