UPDATE 2-Trump to lay out immigration policy in coming days-senators
U.S. President Donald Trump is set to give a speech on immigration policy in coming days, Republican senators said after meeting with top White House advisers on Tuesday. Trump has been working with his top advisers on a proposal that would favor highly skilled workers seeking to immigrate to the United States and cut back on other types of visas.

An overhaul of immigration laws has divided Republicans and Democrats for years, and a compromise ahead of the next presidential election in November 2020 is seen as a tall order. Republican Senators John Cornyn and John Barrasso told reporters that Trump would lay out his views in a speech as soon as this week.

The senators spoke as they were leaving a lunch at the Capitol with White House officials - Trump's son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner and another senior adviser, Stephen Miller - who have been working on the plan for a couple of months.
