Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., are due to have dinner with President Donald Trump at the White House on Wednesday.

The dinner meeting is expected to include discussions on protections for undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. as children and stabilizing the Obamacare health insurance markets.

Schumer, Pelosi, and Trump are also planning to discuss the new deadlines established by the fiscal package approved last week that included a three-month increase in the debt limit.

"It's a continuation of what we should do in December and we're going to work very hard to get him to be for Dreamers and straightening out health care," Schumer said.

The meeting comes a week after Trump reached an agreement with Schumer and Pelosi on the bill providing hurricane relief, raising the debt ceiling and funding the government.

The agreement surprised many Republicans and has been seen as an effort by Trump to reach across the aisle in order to win Democratic support for his legislative priorities.
