The bill tackles the issue of the future of the 690,000 youths, known as "Dreamers", who came to the USA when they were children and were permitted to stay under former President Barack Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) programme, which was established in 2012 and suspended by the Trump administration in September 2017.
Her glimmer of hope was reignited following an announcement by a California judge to temporarily block the Trump administration's decision to end the DACA program.
"It just shows everyone how broken and unfair our Court System is when the opposing side in a case (such as DACA) always runs to the 9th Circuit and nearly always wins before being reversed by higher courts", the President tweeted on Wednesday.
But the unusual public display of presidential dealmaking was jarred soon after by Alsup's ruling ordering the administration to maintain the program nationally pending the resolution of a court challenge. The judge said that argument was likely to prevail. "I don't get that", said No. 2 Senate Republican John Cornyn of Texas. "The iron is hot".More news: Ethiopia to release all political prisoners
To add pressure on Republicans, Schumer also said he wanted an immigration deal to be attached to must-pass budget legislation Congress will soon consider. Without these conservative provisions they will probably not have enough Republican votes to pass a deal.
An immigration package "must be part of a global deal on the budget", Schumer said.
The bill also includes a long-term plan for DACA recipients that outlines a potential path to citizenship while not necessarily favoring DACA recipients over other immigrants seeking citizenship.
Republican Sen. Jeff Flake told reporters Thursday that a bipartisan group of senators had reached an agreement. After he phased out DACA, Trump said he would give Congress until March 5, 2018 to find a permanent solution for this group of immigrants. It allows people brought to the USA illegally as children to stay.
President Donald Trump and a bipartisan group from Congress met January 9 at the White House to discuss a measure to keep DACA and include Trump's demands for a border wall and other security measures.More news: Kodak inventory soar after KodakCoin announcement
Asked about the president's use of the slur, the White House did not deny it but issued a statement saying Trump would "always fight for the American people". This followed suggestions the previous day that he could be willing to sign a DACA deal presented by Congress without including funding for the wall.
"Any solution has to include the wall because without the wall, it all doesn't work", Trump told reporters at the White House. That proposal has been strongly opposed by Democrats and many Republicans as a futile waste of money.
"Hold up on that, because we need to see how USCIS will renew their procedure and if the administration is going to appeal and the likelihood is, yes", Aguayo stated.
