Trump Softens on DREAMers: ‘We’re Going to Work Something Out’

President-elect Donald Trump indicated in a new interview that he will soften his hardline position on undocumented immigrants in favor of the so-called DREAMers—those who were brought to the U.S. illegally by their parents at a young age. In an interview with Time, Trump did not waver on his promise to roll back President Obama’s executive orders with regard to immigration, but he softened his often harsh tone when it comes to immigration reform. “We’re going to work something out that’s going to make people happy and proud,” Trump told the magazine for its Person of the Year feature. “They got brought here at a very young age, they’ve worked here, they’ve gone to school here. Some were good students. Some have wonderful jobs. And they’re in Never-Never Land because they don’t know what’s going to happen.”
