President Donald Trump has proposed an immigration compromise that he and House Democrats could possibly agree on: a path to citizenship for tens of thousands of highly-skilled workers in the U.S. on H-1B visas.

"H1-B holders in the United States can rest assured that changes are soon coming which will bring both simplicity and certainty to your stay, including a potential path to citizenship," Trump tweeted Friday. "We want to encourage talented and highly skilled people to pursue career options in the U.S."

He offered no other details, and the White House and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services did not offer a clarification of the president's tweet. Significant changes to the H-1B visa program would have to be approved by Congress.

Every year, the federal government approves 85,000 H-1B temporary work visas, which are granted to foreign workers who have at least a bachelor's degree and work in specialty fields where demand for talent is fierce.
