Republican strategist Karl Rove has called on the GOP to work with President Barack Obama on an immigration compromise.

"Republicans have to look at this as an opportunity that they have to work," he said on the Fox News program "Happening Now."

"It’s an opportunity to get some things done to help secure the border, policy changes and necessary funds."

Obama has asked Congress for $3.7 billion in emergency funding to handle the flood of illegal immigrants pouring into south Texas and the resulting humanitarian crisis.

Rove said that Republicans should be able to make a deal with the president, such as pressing for more border patrols. "They ought to sit down in good faith," he said of both the administration and the GOP.

On Obama's side, the former White House deputy chief of staff said that the president should be willing to make some compromises.

"I hope the president isn’t stuck in the mud on, 'I have to have $3.7 billion,' and the Republicans shouldn’t feel compelled to give him $3.7 billion if they don’t think it’s needed."
