While some lawmakers are eyeing a bipartisan deal, President Trump has acknowledged the political landmines that might exist, especially if they turn to comprehensive immigration reform. That second bill would likely face long odds for passage, considering long-running disagreements over issues like how to handle all 11 million immigrants illegally in the U.S.

According to NBC News, a federal judge on Tuesday night ordered the Trump administration to revive part of the program that protected people who were illegally brought to the United States as children from being deported, calling the administration's abrupt decision to end the program past year "arbitrary, capricious and an abuse of discretion".

"We write to urge Congress to act immediately and pass a permanent bipartisan legislative solution to enable Dreamers who are now living, working, and contributing to our communities to continue doing so", the executives wrote in the letter.

The Washington Post first reported Trump's comments.

Lawmakers are under a March 5 deadline - imposed by Trump - to come up with a legal fix to the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

The proposal was presented to the White House for President Donald Trump's consideration before seeking passage in the Senate and House of Representatives.

The Medical Examiner's Office did not rule the case as a homicide as the details surrounding Man's death were being investigated. Police are now looking for more information about the death, including information on Man's activities and acquaintances.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Thursday afternoon: "There has not been a deal reached yet". "President Trump has a history of being able to negotiate his way through tricky situations", said Vlad Davidiuk, Communications Director with the Harris County Republican Party.

The bill is also filled with other immigration items on Trump's wish list, including a proposal to allow the Justice Department to withhold grant funding to so-called sanctuary cities. They have known Trump's intentions since he described some Mexicans as "rapists", "criminals", "drug dealers", and "bad hombres".

During that meeting, Trump called for Congress to find a solution for dreamers waiting in limbo after Trump ended the program. California has more than 200,000 Dreamers, more than any other state.

In addition, they proposed a down payment of the $1.6 billion requested by the administration this year on border security, limits to the ability of recipients to sponsor family members and an end to the diversity lottery and reallocation of those visas in part to cover people who were under Temporary Protected Status. "This carefully crafted legislation, which is aligned with the White House's' immigration priorities, combines enforcement measures and increased border security to enhance public safety, ensure the door remains open to law-abiding immigrants, and restore the rule of law". "The imminent termination of the DACA program is creating an impending crisis for workforces across the country".
