Cornyn told reporters any deal needs support from more than the six senators who comprised the bipartisan group.

"However, we caution against introducing unrelated, unnecessary, or controversial elements of immigration policy - especially those that jeopardize the sanctity of families or unaccompanied children - into the bipartisan search for a just and humane solution for the 'Dreamers, '" he said. Flake added that "it's the only game in town. There's no other bill", Sen.

The bipartisan group included Durbin, Flake, Republican Sens. That's when Durbin huddled with members of the Senate bipartisan immigration group he's been working with for months.

If successful, a final version of the bill could be sent for a Senate floor vote by next week.

The proposal is an attempt to satisfy the concerns of both Republicans and Democrats who have competing visions and demands on immigration.

Democrats and other supporters of the so-called DREAMers have called for a legislative implementation of DACA to be attached to a must-pass spending bill that would keep the government funded beyond January 19.

"He will always reject temporary, weak and risky stopgap measures that threaten the lives of hardworking Americans, and undercut immigrants who seek a better life in the United States through a legal pathway". Fortunately, Mr. Trump, on Wednesday, walked back such comments about signing most anything Congress placed on his desk relative to immigration, and reiterated his challenge to Capitol Hill, "No wall, no deal on DACA (Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals)".

In response to a court order, the federal government on Saturday suddenly announced the agency is again accepting renewal applications from young immigrants previously approved for the DACA program providing deportation protections and work permits.

Goodlatte, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, introduced the bill alongside Republican leaders of several other House committees and subcommittees related to immigration and national security.

Trump has called for an end to the Temporary Protected Status designation that allows certain groups of immigrants legal status as well as so-called chain migration and ending the lottery system.

Democrats are unlikely to agree to some of those measures.

As part of any agreement about DACA, Trump has insisted that there be funding for a wall on the Southern border with Mexico, which many Democrats have opposed. He stressed the need for "surveillance" and "manpower" in tandem with that. He seemed to say that, with no conditions attached, he would support a bill legalizing these young immigrants brought into the United States illegally by their parents.

The main appeal for Democrats is that the deal includes the DREAM Act, legislation that would create a pathway to citizenship for DACA recipients.

Trump ended the program past year, citing legal challenges by states, but gave Congress until March 5 to negotiate a deal that would allow "Dreamers" to stay legally.

The Trump administration recently set an $18 billion price tag over a decade for the border wall - a hefty bill, especially for budget-minded Republicans.
