Biden and Congress are mulling big changes on immigration. What are they and what could they mean?

WASHINGTON - President Joe Biden is taking a more active role in Senate negotiations over changes to the immigration system that Republicans are demanding in exchange for providing money to Ukraine in its fight against Russia and Israel for the war with Hamas.

The Democratic president has said he is willing to make ''significant compromises on the border'' as Republicans block the wartime aid in Congress. The White House is expected to get more involved in talks this week as the impasse over changes to border policy has deepened and the funds remaining for Ukraine have dwindled.

''It's time to cut a deal that both sides can agree to,'' Biden's budget director, Shalanda Young, said Sunday on CBS' ''Face the Nation.''
