President Donald Trump reversed course on Friday and threw his support behind a House Republican immigration bill.
The House next week is expected to consider the measure, which offers a pathway to citizenship for young immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally as children, funds Trump's proposed border wall and ends the diversity visa "lottery" system. The chamber will also take up a separate bill that meets more conservative demands.
White House deputy press secretary Raj Shah, in a written statement, said the president would sign either bill.
In an interview earlier in the day, Trump had expressed opposition to the compromise legislation.
"I certainly wouldn't sign the more moderate one," the president said.
