Congressional leaders from both parties will meet with White House chief of staff John Kelly next week to reach a deal on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, Politico reports. 

Two unnamed "sources familiar with the planning" confirm that Republican and Democratic leaders will attend the meeting. President Donald Trump himself was not confirmed, though he recently tweeted about DACA.

Democratic leaders in the House and Senate both dismissed Trump's tweet.

"We're not going to negotiate through the press and look forward to a serious negotiation at Wednesday's meeting when we come back," House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., spokesman, Drew Hamill, told Politico.

Pelosi and her counterpart in the upper chamber, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, will join House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., on Wednesday.

Last month, Pelosi and Schumer skipped a planning meeting on the issue after Trump tweeted a deal was unlikely. He told The New York Times on Thursday that he "wouldn't do a DACA plan without a wall," though he does think that Democrats and Republicans can reach a bipartisan solution on the program.
