Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), in which the Democratic leaders claimed a deal was made, or almost made, on DACA and border security.

She says on DACA, there's general agreement the young people affected should have a way to stay but some members of Congress feel that should combine with better border security and better immigration law so there's not a new wave of children in the same situation a few years from now. He also praised them as "good, educated and accomplished young people who have jobs". "I mean this was a straight up promise all the way through his campaign", King said on "New Day".

The president gave Congress six months to resolve the issue.

One Republican-only proposal comes from Florida Rep. Carlos Curbelo, and now has more than 30 Republican co-sponsors in the House.

For others, getting rid of the temporary deferment was about law and order, a move meant to fortify American borders and enforce existing laws by forcing Congress to fish or cut bait on revisiting the rules of those who call the USA home.

White House chief of staff John Kelly is increasingly looking like a key culprit behind President Trump's newfound support of legislative amnesty.

Since the Trump administration's decision to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals in early September, immigration reform has become bigger than Russian Federation once again.

"At some point [Democrats] can not obstruct the wall".

Rosa Martinez, an immigration activist and a recipient of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, known as DACA, takes part in a rally September 12 in Washington urging Congress to pass the DREAM Act.

"So I think something is going to have to get reversed here with this president's policy or it will just blow up his base".

"I and a bi-partisan group of fellow lawmakers sat down with the President to discuss the Fall agenda this afternoon".

"I hope the President is true to this word".

"In addition, to qualify for this program, these individuals had to meet stringent eligibility requirements, including educational achievement and a lack of any felony or serious misdemeanor convictions", the press release stated.

During the public comment period before the approval of the resolution, most speakers, including a DACA recipient, supported it. Making sure we have the proper legislation, that is not bogged down with partisan extraneous proposals, ready to pass both chambers is one of my top priorities. The program provided a legal status for recipients, including participation in Social Security, for almost 800,000 immigrants who were brought to the United States illegally as children.
