With Democrats demanding a path to citizenship as part of any solution for those covered by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program that President Trump nixed past year, and Trump demanding funding for his border wall, it's unclear how or if the sides can come together.
Trump, under pressure from some conservatives, repeated his demand that any DACA deal with Democrats must include ending "chain migration", which could jeopardize the parents of Dreamers who are still in the United States illegally, and a visa lottery program.
Separately, Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn, R-Texas, said Tuesday that another short-term spending bill to buy more time for negotiations is "likely". And yeah, they're going to have border patrols there to make sure that doesn't happen, just like we already have now that clearly isn't stopping the problem enough for republicans. "And if there's other elements that have to be included in a broader deal to get signed into law, this is a foundation for that conversation". "If they come to me with things that I'm not in love with, I'm going to do it", Trump asserted. DACA has become a bargaining chip as Congress moves closer to having to pass a spending bill or shut down the government.
As congressional negotiators forge ahead with plans to shield recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program from deportation ahead of a March deadline, Republicans and Democrats are grappling with how to give Trump a symbolic win without sabotaging a compromise they've been carefully and sincerely crafting for months. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) asked Trump whether he would support a "clean DACA bill now with a commitment that we go into into a comprehensive immigration reform procedure", alluding to previous iterations of immigration legislation that offer a pathway to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants.

Teenager murders family members on New Year's Eve
The prosecutor said the teenager's grandfather and brother were not targeted and left the home unharmed, according to The A.P. He's expected to make a court appearance on January 2.
McCarthy said lawmakers in both parties agreed to constrain the immediate immigration push to four areas: DACA, securing the border, and addressing family-based "chain migration" and the visa lottery program.
The president appeared to acknowledge the potential political pitfalls of pursuing a more permanent deal, telling the lawmakers, "I'll take all the heat you want".
"And remember this, its just common sense, thet are not sending us their finest, OK", Trump said.
"We need a wall", Trump said, during the long exchange with lawmakers.
But then a few minutes later, Trump said DACA could come first and reform could come down the road, or immediately after. Congressional aides reported that party leaders are informed of their proposal to let certain Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients, which ended in September 2017, ultimately get permanent or conditional residence and potentially qualify for USA citizenship.
