TPS grants legal status to immigrants, allowing them to work. They have attended school. They've worked and paid taxes here. "They are contributors to our economy, veterans of our military, academic standouts in our universities, and leaders in our parishes and communities". Losing DACA is a fear many of them have.
A border security provision is likely to include more money for a mix of additional physical barriers and technology along the US border with Mexico but probably not a border wall on the scale that Trump campaigned on in 2016.
Trump previous year said he would end this executive action in six months and pressed Congress to act before DACA expires.
But on Tuesday, U.S. District Judge William Alsup in San Francisco ruled that the Trump administration's decision to eliminate DACA was based on a shoddy legal argument and called the move "arbitrary" and "capricious".
On Thursday, Flake said the physical structure Trump has called for does not need to be a "wall" but "more of a fence".

The Republicans will have to cave on DACA and the Democrats will have to cave on the border wall.
He doesn't care anyway. Just 21% of Republicans think this, and one in three Republicans say it makes the country a worse place to live. "He goes ahead and makes these racist remarks, throwing fuel to the fire and making it very hard for anybody to be able to reach an agreement with him".
