White House: 'Flake-Graham-Durbin' Agreement on Immigration 'Dead on Arrival'

"As we've said just about every day, this year since we've been here we're going to be fully cooperative with the special counsel", Sanders said.

"I'm going to build it way under budget, but we're putting down $25 billion for the wall", Trump said.

Trump was talking about the young immigrants who had been protected from deportation and given the right to work legally in the country under the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA.

"Look, the president's number one job as commander in chief and the president is national security, and we can not protect American citizens - we can not protect this country - if we don't secure our border", Sanders said.

His pronouncement came as the White House announced it would be unveiling a legislative framework on immigration next week that it hopes can pass both the House and the Senate.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders struggled Wednesday to point to specific steps President Donald Trump has taken to address mass shootings, pointing instead to the administration's broad efforts to crack down on violent crime.

The White House has reiterated its opposition to the measure, and officials say they are escalating criticism to kill it as immigration talks resume.

Around three dozen senators, evenly divided among Republicans and Democrats, planned to meet late Wednesday in what No. 2 Senate GOP leader John Cornyn of Texas said was a chance to "get people thinking about a framework that might actually work".

Sanders said the bipartisan bill, which has also received support from Sen. "As soon as that is done, we're more than happy to negotiate on responsible immigration reform", she said.

"A sequel seems likely given absolutely no policy resolution", said Chris Krueger, an analyst at Cowen Washington Research Group. That suggests both parties would be allowed to offer amendments. "And I think we're never going to get there as long as we embrace concepts that can not possibly get 60 votes". Trump decided last fall to end the program by March 5, 2018, and Congress has since failed to reach agreement with the White House about how to extend it.

Trump also addressed the coming fight over DACA in a statement applauding the end of the government shutdown. "But the President has laid out what he wants, and if they need help understand it, we'd be happy to send some people over there to explain it to them".
