Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez does not believe President Donald Trump is open to a compromise on immigration.

"I judge a person by their actions," the newly-elected DNC chief said on CNN's "New Day."

"And everything that Donald Trump has said about immigration has been immigrant baiting. We've seen it from the campaign, we've seen it through the election, we talk about the wall again last night.

"What he doesn't talk about are the people he's deporting," he added. "He claims to only be deporting immigrants who have been convicted of a serious crime. That's simply not accurate."

The Hill reported Trump had told television news anchors he was open to an immigration bill that provides a path to legal status for undocumented immigrants living in the U.S., who haven't committed crimes.

But the website noted he did not mention his proposal during his speech to Congress.
