President Donald Trump signaled a willingness to compromise on a key immigration issue — but then he blew it.

The president suggested during his State of the Union address that immigrants brought to the United States as children posed a threat to native-born Americans, and internet users were horrified.

“I am extending an open hand to work with members of both parties — Democrats and Republicans — to protect our citizens of every background, color, religion and creed,” Trump said. “My duty, and the sacred duty of every elected official in this chamber, is to defend Americans — to protect their safety, their families, their communities, and their right to the American Dream. Because Americans are dreamers too.”
