Despite agreeing to work with Democrats on immigration overhaul, President Trump Sunday night released an immigration proposal that includes funding for a wall on the U.S. Mexico border, stripping federal grants from sanctuary cities and cracking down on immigration by families of green card holders as well as Central American children who cross the border unaccompanied.

Democratic leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi called the Trump plan unworkable.

Here & Now's Robin Young talk to USA Today immigration reporter Alan Gomez (@alangomez).
