Did Democrats do a DACA deal with Trump or is it a dream?

Democrats appear to be making deals with the Trump administration, the latest being a path to citizenship for young people who were affected by the end of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, CNN reports. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi announced the deal Wednesday night after a meeting with President Trump at the White House. If it's reached, it would be the second major agreement between the administration and Democrats, the first being a deal on the debt ceiling and government spending. However, The Washington Post reports that Trump said "we're not looking at citizenship" for "Dreamers," or young undocumented immigrants who were brought to the US as children. Meanwhile, House Speaker Paul Ryan said even if there is a deal, it will still have to passed by the Republican-controlled Congress. Is a "dream" deal dead or alive? Like so many other issues with the Trump administration, things could turn on a dime at any moment. While it does make politics in the time of Trump almost as exciting as a reality TV show, the lives of 800,000 young immigrants depend on the series finale.
