Kellyanne Conway, counselor to the president, said Wednesday that 2018 should be a “historic year” for immigration.

“This president won in part on taking a tough stand against illegal immigrants just coming over the border,” Ms. Conway said on Fox News.

“People want to know that our borders are secure, and this president has a 70-point immigration plan,” she added.

President Trump has made immigration a focal point of his administration and presidential campaign from the very beginning. He has put additional pressure on Congress to act, rescinding the DACA policy — the Obama-era plan allowing those brought to the U.S. illegally as children to remain in the country — and urging lawmakers to replace the executive order with a new law.

Mr. Trump has emphasized that he will not sign any form of DACA legislation, however, without funding for the border wall.
