President Donald Trump holds a bipartisan meeting with 25 members of Congress to discuss immigration, signs an executive order supporting veterans and the nation's capital gets ready to celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Here's a look at photo highlights from the week of January 8, 2017, in Washington, D.C.

Rep. Henry Cuellar, R-Texas, holds up a map related to the border wall during the immigration meeting. "You need it," Trump said when asked if he would accept a deal to help young people in the country without proper documentation without getting the wall. "I'd love not to build the wall, but you need the wall." Photo by Kevin Dietsch/UPI
"Well, that was a unique meeting," Durbin told reporters upon leaving in the West Wing driveway. He said he left the meeting with a "positive" outlook and a greater "desire to get this done." Photo by Kevin Dietsch/UPI
