Rolling out the immigration framework on Monday will allow President Donald Trump to discuss it during his first State of the Union address next Tuesday night.

"He wants to make a deal on DACA", the program that protects young immigrants brought illegally to the U.S.as children, Sanders said.

President Donald Trump was planning to leave later in the week.

Democrats unsuccessfully sought to tie a solution to the DACA issue to a stop-gap measure to fund the federal government, but Republicans rejected the effort, leading to a shutdown from Saturday to Monday.

South Carolina's Sen. Lindsey Graham, a key Republican negotiator, called the White House's plan to release a framework "excellent", noting the importance of getting the White House's "input". The case is due to be heard in the Supreme Court in the next several weeks. "He's spent a lot of time on the phone".

The three-day government shutdown shined a fresh light not only on the dysfunction of Washington, but also on the President's vacillating views. Patrick Leahy asked about Trump's forthcoming immigration framework.

Trump said in September he was scrapping DACA, throwing the future of those it covers, who are known as "Dreamers", into doubt, but delayed enforcement to give Congress six months - until March - to craft a lasting solution.

"It's going to take a tremendous amount of input, support and encouragement from the President", Thune told CNN on Monday. "I expect we will be hearing from him early and often once these discussions get underway". He retains only a loose grasp on the details and nuance of immigration policy.

White House officials Trump's initial proposal for citizenship would be limited to the 690,000 who were enrolled in DACA when Trump terminated the program.

Trump has consistently said any agreement to replace DACA has to include new measures to crack down on what he considers bad immigration policies. Lindsey Graham of SC and Jeff Flake of Arizona and Democratic Sen. But it is not doing its work with much of a mind toward whether Trump would sign it or the House would pass it, he said. "It's up to the Democrats, but they (the Dreamers) should not be concerned", Trump told reporters during an impromptu question-and-answer session at the White House.

"If we don't solve this problem in 14 days, the Republicans are going to have to explain to dreamers what their plan is to prevent them from being deported", Schumer said.

Trump's involvement in these negotiations has been disastrous for almost everyone involved. Jeff Flake, the Arizona Republican frequently at odds with the White House. I hope that it does. "I took our thing off - they took their thing off the table, I took our thing, we're starting over". The goal is to produce consensus legislation that would be the starting point for Senate debate on immigration, which is expected to begin February 8, said Sens.

"Part of why we made progress this past weekend in reopening the government was that the president stayed out of it", said Coons, a Democrat.

"It sounds like some members in the House have real concerns about what's in that memo, and feel very strongly that the American public should be privy to see it", Sanders said.
