Flake said "those messages have certainly been sent" on the upcoming immigration debate. "And I said it once and I'll say it again, we will bring a DACA solution to the floor".
In Washington's latest display of governance by brinkmanship, the bipartisan accord bolstering military and domestic programs and deepening federal deficits crossed the finish line just before dawn - but not before the government shut down overnight.
With a bipartisan agreement in place for a long-term spending deal, Sen.
"You're going to hear as many variations as the fertile minds of my colleagues can produce", said Durbin, "but I will just tell you my goal is still a pathway to citizenship for the Dreamers, and will keep working towards that goal".
"The Bible speaks clearly and repeatedly to God's love and concern for the vulnerable and also challenges us to think beyond our nationality, ethnicity or religion when loving our neighbor", it continued. "My personal opinion is he would much rather see us focus on a (border) wall, and he'll use whatever leverage, and that's not happening".
The proposals being kicked around include matching President Trump's offer of a path to citizenship for 1.8 million "Dreamers", but appropriating only $4 billion for border security - less than a sixth of the $25 billion the president wants, according to sources.
The White House said Trump favoured a merit-based immigration system, which attracts the best and the brightest from across the world.
House Democratic leaders have pledged not to vote for the deal, agreed upon in the Senate, mainly because it lacks an immigration component.
SpaceX launch spurs reflections on 'worthy venture'

Rubio in particular is advising members to avoid the issue of "chain migration", also called "family-based migration", when it comes to the parents of DACA recipients. Before he became speaker in 2015, members of the hardline GOP House Freedom Caucus say Ryan promised them he would not bring up an immigration bill that did not have support from the majority of House Republicans.
And, though he initially had said former President Barack Obama's unconstitutional amnesty, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals order, would be allowed to expire in April, Trump is softening even on that.
Legal protection for DREAMers has broad bipartisan support, at least in principle.
Lawmakers are scrambling to get legislation to the floor next week. The bill did not include DREAMers so Democrats blocked it; to end the stalemate, Schumer agreed to a deal with McConnell that called for the Senate to immediately take up DREAMer legislation if there was no broader accord by February 8. But the president's immigration plan faces difficulties from both sides of the aisle.

There's no obvious compromise that could win the 60 votes from Republicans and Democrats needed to prevail in the Senate.
McConnell on Wednesday reiterated that the debate on DREAMers, border security and other issues will be "a process that is fair to all sides".
As lawmakers in Washington, D.C., this week have debated over yet another stop-gap funding measure to keep the government running (or not), once again the issue of Dreamers - children brought illegally to this country whose quest for US citizenship has drawn harsh political divisions - have been bantered about as Republicans and the president openly mislead the public about USA immigration laws. The Trump administration rescinded the policy in 2017, creating a March 5deadline for protections from deportation to end.
At this point, Flake told reporters on Thursday, it's unclear what coalitions will develop and which amendments will gain steam.
