Some Senate Republicans are proposing a reauthorization of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program in a last-ditch attempt to rescue funding for President Trumps border wall.
As a motion to proceed to the House-passed measure providing $5.7 billion for the border wall stalled on the Senate floor, some Republicans proposed at a private lunch meeting to add protections for undocumented immigrants in order to pick up Democratic support.
I dont see any reason to proceed to a bill that cant pass, said Sen. Jeff Flake (Ariz.), a Republican who voted against a motion to proceed to the House bill, which keeps 25 percent of government funded until Feb. 8.
Flake said he wants to find a bill that can pass.
I think one that could if were going to reopen this thing to add more money for a wall or steel slats, or whatever you want to call it, then throw DACA in too, Flake said, adding that several colleagues support his position.
Senate Republicans convened a meeting in the Mansfield Room while the motion to proceed to the House bill sat stalled on the Senate floor.

Always knew it would come to this.
Flakes a friggin TRAITOR!
Yet, this delusional Bass Turd, Flake, thinks he can run as Republican and successfully challenge Trump in a primary.
or whatever you want to call it, then throw DACA in too, Flake said, adding that several colleagues support his position.
Colleagues like his boyfriend Coons, all the other democrats, maybe Corker.
“If you want a wall, give us amnesty”, always the same tune with Bush League Republicans.
How many daca kids are there? If this compromise involves letting in all their extended families, forget it.
No deal Flake
DACA for 100% of Wall not 20% of Wall
(That was Trumps offer to the Dems last year)
This is how we ended up with bad deals over the years, idiots like Flake you make them
Flake wouldn’t be able to win his own state.
Trump offered it before and the Dems turned him down. Why would the Dems be for it this time?
Flake screwing around yet again? Will nobody rid us of this troublesome priest ?!! (With apologies to the bard.). My Lord how Arizona has fallen ..
Fine by me.
You get DACA, we get a wall
No one gets everything they want....
Daca for the full $25-30b. MAYBE. $5b? No way.
Then 200 billion dollars.
Daca for the full 25 billion,not for jyst 5 billion
STOP GIVING PRIZES for illegal immigration!!!
Dead in the House.
OKay, give the original 670,000 kids and NOT their families AND include e-Verify. Maybe, while they are at it, through in end of chain migration, automatic deportation of anyone that is or has illegally entering the country or stayed illegally in the country. Seems like congress would do well to just get all these things and others done now in an end of year push. Then, they can bitch over Christmas and return to start the new year fresh.
A bunch of useless pr—ks! A total waste of good air.
