"He has not changed his view," Sessions said. "But he had a great meeting with people who had different ideas as I understand. I wasn’t there, but he had a good discussion. He listened to all the different views. Look, we need a lawful system of immigration. Trump is absolutely clear and correct on that. We must end the lawlessness first. We can’t talk about these other issues until that occurs. I think that remains his firm position."
