On Tuesday, U.S. District Judge William Alsup issued a preliminary injunction blocking President Donald Trump's decision to end the Obama-era initiative.

In addition to protecting dreamers, and jump-starting the border wall and funding other security measures (including surveillance technology and retaining Border Patrol agents), the deal would reshape and shrink the diversity lottery system that Mr.Trump and some other Republicans dislike.

If Congress doesn't reach an agreement on this immigration issue and pass a spending bill, the effect would be a government shutdown by the end of the week.

The senator, David Perdue of Georgia, also accused another participant in the White House meeting, Senator Richard J. Durbin, Democrat of IL, of a "gross misrepresentation" of what the President had said at the session.

"I am deeply appalled and saddened that my people have to deal with this blatant racism, and lack of respect", says Solages.

"I urge the president to lead us to that bipartisan solution".

The furor Trump ignited with his reported use of a vulgarity about African nations in a meeting with lawmakers last week about DACA consumed the Sunday talk shows just days before the federal government is due to shut down absent a fresh congressional spending bill.

Senators Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and Dick Durbin, D-Ill., continue to push their bipartisan deal on DACA. But some House GOP defense hawks could vote no because they want lawmakers to approve long-term spending for the Pentagon.

Those talks have been lead by the second-ranking Republicans and Democrats in the House and the Senate.

But Trump has stuck with a vague denial that he used such language, and so far has made no move to apologize, hurting prospects for a deal on DACA and making life uncomfortable for Republicans as they look ahead to midterm elections this year.

Perdue said that "the potential is there" for a deal to protect the "Dreamers" but that Democrats needed to get serious. "If that's the case, I guess the day of reckoning will come tomorrow".

"It is a dream of the world where people are judged by who they are, not how they look or where they come from".

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell threw his support behind Ryan's idea Wednesday morning on the Senate floor.

That should give Congress license to make a deal - and ignore President Trump.

The Goodlatte version of the bill would increase border security and immigration enforcement as well as require verification of workers, according to CNN. The injunction, said Becerra, lessened the need to tie legislation to the budget bill.
