WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump will deliver a speech on immigration on Thursday at 2:30 p.m. (1830 GMT), the White House said on Wednesday.

Trump has made immigration a focus of his presidency, pledging to build a wall along the southern border with Mexico. Republican senators said on Tuesday that Trump would describe in the speech how immigration laws should be overhauled.
