President Trump welcomed Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny, who spoke at a luncheon at the U.S. Capitol on Thursday as part of a series of events celebrating St. Patrick's Day. Those also included a one-on-one meeting with Trump at the White House, where the two discussed immigration, trade and the Irish economy.
On people living in the U.S. illegally, Kenny said, "We would like this to be sorted. It would remove a burden of so many people that they can stand out in the light and say, now I am free to contribute to America as I know I can. And that's what people want."
Kenny also urged Trump to consider providing more work visas "for young people who want to come to America and to work here."
