However, President Trump has said he will revisit the problem at the end of the six-month period if Congress can not find a legislative solution in that time. "I think it's terrible", St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson said Friday.

We are the land of opportunity, and we can not pride ourselves on that unless we make a change and stand with those who want the opportunities that were promised to them.
