According to Sen. Jeff Flake, a bipartisan group of senators has made a deal on DACA.
A bipartisan group of senators has struck a deal on legislation that would shield hundreds of thousands of young immigrants from deportation, Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., told reporters Thursday.
“We’ve got this bipartisan group, we’re at a deal,” the senator said, according to NBC News. “So we’ll be talking to the White House about that and I hope we can move forward with it, it’s the only game in town. There’s no other bill.”
Shortly after Flake’s comments, a spokesman for Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., said talks were still ongoing, according to Reuters. Durbin is a member of the bipartisan group and an early proponent of legislation to shield those immigrants.
