Jesus Lucero, a member of Scholarship A-Z, an organization that works for access to higher education and equal rights for young immigrants, recently spent two-and-a-half weeks in the halls of Congress, telling politicians his story.
Mr. Durbin said he and a small group of senators from both parties still intend to put forward their compromise bill next week, but he intimated that any future progress would have to come from Congress, not the President.

"With all due respect to my Democratic friends, it's not going to happen", Rep. Henry Cuellar, a Laredo Democrat who attended Tuesday's meeting, told NPR.

The president doubled down days later saying he supports "the idea of discussing" comprehensive immigration reform in a Thursday interview with The Wall Street Journal.
