"I've not read one of them that's inaccurate", Durbin said. "What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made - a big setback for DACA!".

Alsup also noted the possibility that Trump's termination of the program was "contrived to give the administration a bargaining chip to demand funding for a border wall", as the plaintiffs had argued in their lawsuit.

On border security, the plan would provide $2.8 billion, including $1.6 billion for a border barrier, technical surveillance and agent training, plus another $1.2 billion for other border priorities, the aides said.

But Trump has also previously suggested that he would seek indirect payment from Mexico to fund the wall. They argued the administration acted arbitrarily when it chose to kill DACA. For now, at least, DACA recipients can breathe easy, but Cater understands this is only temporary.

But until now, Trump's support has been contingent on Congress appropriating money to build a wall on the U.S.

The meeting delivered a significant setback to the bipartisan working group, which first announced the deal earlier on Thursday afternoon.
