The BBC reports that the Democrats are seeking protection for around "700,000 undocumented immigrants who came to country as children, known as "Dreamers", after Trump ended the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (Daca) program a year ago".

But a Supreme Court ruling could easily take months, and the Justice Department - in an unusual move - said it does not plan to ask the court to put the judge's ruling on hold.

These protections are set to expire in March following President Donald Trump's rescission of DACA in September.

The next step, she said, will involve working to get elected officials they believe are not fighting on behalf of immigrant communities out of office and putting in individuals who will support them. "We are still accepting applications".

Putting government operations at risk is a political gamble for both sides, but it's clear that Republicans think the stakes - possibly their control of Congress - are too high to chance a shutdown or the possible deportation of DACA recipients. These caps on the amount the government can increase spending for defense and non-defense spending from year to year are much lower than lawmakers want.

But if House Republican leaders can't find enough votes for a temporary spending bill, it will be because a combination of Democrats and Republican spending hawks wouldn't support it - complicating efforts to point fingers across the partisan aisle.

Two other Freedom Caucus members, Mo Brooks of Alabama and Joe Barton of Texas, said they would vote for the stopgap, which also provides money for the popular Children's Health Insurance Program, or CHIP.

He said Trump and the Republicans want to pursue a "policy of intransigence" as they did when pushing the president's health care legislation as well as the tax reform bill.

Nothing productive, according to aides in both parties from both chambers.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said the Senate would take up the short-term funding bill as soon as the House of Representatives approves it.

Though many conservative Republicans tend to vote against spending measures, Ryan has successfully kept his members in line for the last two spending bills. He is spearheading fresh talks on the issue with the other second-ranking Democrats and Republicans in the House and Senate.

Meanwhile, Democrats were hoping for a budget impasse, as they argue that a resolution on DACA could still be added into the mix this week.

McConnell's blunt answer came in response to questions about where the immigration debate goes now that a bipartisan Senate proposal from the so-called "gang of six" was rejected by Trump and GOP leaders.

Sens. Dick Durbin, D-Illinois, and Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, introduced their bill Wednesday afternoon with Sens.

"What we are tying to do is just get a schedule of meetings", said Sen.

"The fact remains the only way to guarantee the legal status for DREAMers is to pass DACA protections into law and do it now", Schumer said Wednesday.

"I want a comprehensive deal", Carper told reporters.

Waiting. A lot hinges on what happens in the House.

'Physical Agreement'; Bangladesh and Myanmar aims to resettle Rohingyas in 2 years
Myanmar authorities have announced plans to build a temporary camp in Rakhine state to accommodate about 30,000 people in 625 buildings.

Testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday, the new Homeland Security Secretary, Kirstjen Nielsen, claimed she never heard Trump use the expression.

"This has turned into an s-show", said Sen. Patrick J. Leahy, D-Vt.

He said the bipartisan bill proposed by Durbin and Graham is a "fair, down the middle compromise" that includes all of the issues Trump wanted to be addressed in a bipartisan agreement.

"Norway is a predominantly white country, isn't it?"

New Jersey Democrat Cory Booker accused Nielsen of being an enabler.

"You're under oath", he told Nielsen. Your silence and your amnesia is complicity. "You can't remember the words of your commander in chief", Sen. They fester. They become poison. When Trump decided he wasn't interested in preserving the program, he stipulated a six-month window for Congress to pass a permanent legislative fix.

"I think that we're optimistic that we'll get a deal".

President Barack Obama created the DACA program by executive order in 2012, allowing the Dreamers to apply for deferral from deportation and permission to work and attend school.
