Trump hails immigration plan at homeland security meeting

RESTON, Va. (AP) - President Donald Trump says his immigration plan is needed to protect the borders.
    
Trump visited the U.S. Customs and Border Protection National Targeting Center in Virginia on Friday. At a roundtable with top homeland security officials, the Republican president said their jobs would be "100 percent easier" with the right laws.
    
The White House has proposed creating a path to citizenship for up to 1.8 million young people living in the county illegally. In exchange, they want billions of dollars for a border wall and dramatic cuts to legal immigration.
    
Democrats have blasted the plan and called it dead on arrival.
    
Trump says Democrats "can't even approve citizenship."
