President Donald Trump said Wednesday that he stands by a few words ad-libbed into his State of the Union address and wants more legal immigration to the U.S. -- an apparent reversal of his administration’s policies.

Trump said Tuesday that immigration enriches the country and “I want people to come into our country, in the largest numbers ever, but they have to come in legally," he said.
