It is expected to demand border security in return for DACA.
The latest immigration negotiations are part of a broader series of talks over issues ranging from funding the federal government through next September to renewing a children's health insurance program and giving USA territories and states additional aid for rebuilding after last year's hurricanes and wildfires.
US President Donald Trump today claimed the news media will ultimately support him, as otherwise their ratings and businesses would be impacted.
"This is the only bill that will get the majority of the conference and I think we can get to 218 Republicans to vote for it", said Rep. Raul Labrador, R-Idaho, a member of the hard-line Freedom Caucus and a co-sponsor of the bill.
Then on Thursday, a bipartisan group of senators presented the president with an agreement on new legislation for immigrants brought to the US illegally as children.
In response, the White House said the decision was "outrageous".
Alsup said that reasoning was flawed because the agency and administration do have the authority to implement the program, which allows children brought to the country as undocumented immigrants stay and work legally for two-year intervals.
DACA is an Obama-era program which ends March 5th. The Department of Homeland Security counts 690,000 people now enrolled in the program, known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.
Reiterating his call for border security - of which a wall along the Mexico border is an integral part - Trump said it also has to be a bill to end chain migration. "We are now working to build support for that deal in Congress", the statement read. California has more than 200,000 Dreamers, more than any other state.
Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal, a frequent Trump critic, said on Thursday the comments "smack of blatant racism, the most odious and insidious racism masquerading poorly as immigration policy".
"I cant get over that feeling of what is going to happen are we going to get our hopes up again", Gasca said. And, it would reallocate the diversity visas for other uses, said Cotton of Arkansas. In exchange, the bill would offer three-year renewable legal status for DACA recipients.
The legislation, according to the Journal article, would allocate funds for the construction of a wall along parts of the U.S. -Mexico border as well provide money for technological advances created to enhance security.
President Trump wants Congress to spend $18-billion dollars on a border wall.
Texas Senator John Cornyn, the second ranking member of Senate Republicans, says he'd be surprised if an immigration deal can be completed by then.
