President Donald Trump says the Democrats are "missing in action" when it comes to passing an immigration overhaul.
Trump is telling Republican party leaders and donors: "The Democrats are AWOL. ... They're missing in action. We have a proposal. We never hear from them."
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 for billions for a border wall and dramatic cuts to legal immigration.
Democrats have blasted the plan and called it dead on arrival.
Trump is accusing Democrats of wanting to use the issue as a wedge in the 2018 midterm elections. He says, "I don't think they want to solve" the problem.
