Democratic leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer dined with President Donald Trump on Wednesday night. The leaders also discussed with the president the fate of undocumented immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as children under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA).

After the meeting with Trump, the two leaders said in a joint statement: "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," as several media outlets reported.

A White House official statement offered no confirmation of any specific agreement. In regard to the areas of discussion, it read: "These topics included tax reform, border security, DACA, infrastructure and trade. This is a positive step toward the president's strong commitment to bipartisan solutions for the issues most important to all Americans."

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders further seemed to dispute the version of the events produced by the Democrats. Sanders tweeted: "While DACA and border security were both discussed, excluding the wall was certainly not agreed to."

Wednesday's deal is the latest attempt by Trump to move towards bipartisanship after months of blaming the Democrats as "obstructionist." The president also urged his opponent party members to join him in rebuilding the nation's tax code, among other priorities, according to Fox News.

Twitter users did not shy away from sharing their opinions about the DACA deal between Trump and Schumer and Pelosi. While some criticized Trump's move of siding with the Democrats, others referred to Pelosi and Schumer as "liars" and said what they said in their joint statement was "misleading" as the official White House statement didn't mention anything about reaching a deal.

Around 800,000 young immigrants are covered under DACA, formed by former President Barack Obama in 2012. Earlier this month, the current administration announced it was wrapping up the program over the next six months and has given Congress six months to act on it.

In the 1990s to mid-2000s, the U.S. started enforcing stricter measures on the U.S.-Mexico border which led to many undocumented immigrants settling down in the U.S. with their families. They did so because they wanted to avoid crossing the border so as to not get caught.

Around the same time, there were some changes in the law that made it almost impossible for an immigrant to get legal status if they were residing in the country illegally. Hence, the children who had crossed the border in an illegal way with their parents were growing up in a country where they might never get legal citizenship. These children were known as the DREAMers after the DREAM Act introduced in 2001. This piece of legislation laid down a path to citizenship for these children. However, that legislation got stalled in Congress which made Obama to create the DACA program in 2012, Vox reported. 

While DACA could not pave the path to citizenship for DREAMers, it offered them with a temporary grant of protection from deportation and also a permit to work legally in the nation.
