The judge did not rule on the merits of the case but said the plaintiffs would suffer irreparable harm if the Trump administration ended DACA before the legal dispute is resolved.

"The President's comments damaged us greatly".

When the publication inquired about the missing words, a White House official reportedly said that "any omission from the transcript was unintentional and that the context of the conversation was clear". Kelly will not attend every meeting but he is now responsible for getting a deal done.

One White House official, Marc Short, said Trump has not approved the plan.

Though Congress has until March to reach a deal, legislators on both sides of the aisle say they're "very close" to submitting a final draft, and may propose a floor vote by next week.

The Republican-run House needs only a majority. He also attended a meeting with a dozen senators December 19 on Capitol Hill. "Hopefully they'll eventually come together", Thune said. "It doesn't seem right to not know if we are going to fulfill our dream or not", said Darian. "And I think they need to listen to those voices.You have to have people from the border to address the border".
