We are again just a few days away from a potential government shutdown. Trump gave Congress a six-month window to come up with a legislative fix before DACA protections expire. NPR's Kelsey Snell has more from Capitol Hill.

"It could happen", Trump said. The Democrats are really looking at something that is very risky for our country.

"Shut it down", they chanted. Unfortunately, the word has been hijacked by Democratically controlled cities to mean harboring illegal immigrants, including felons.

SNELL: Democrats say that's wrong on multiple counts.

With more rational thinking and less presidential hyperbole, maybe we'll avoid clampdowns and raids similar to what recently occurred at Cloverhill Bakery on Chicago's West Side, where 800 workers without sufficient documentation were let go and have to be replaced. Washington state's USA representatives Dan Newhouse, Jaime Herrera Buetler, Dave Reichert, and Cathy McMorris Rodgers are standing in the way of approximately 17,000 Washington state DACA recipients and our futures.

On September 5, 2017 President Trump repealed the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).

But activists and many Democrats are specific.

"Put bluntly", Sharry continued, "the Grassley-Cornyn bill says, 'give us everything we want in exchange for nearly nothing you want, deal?'"

Dreamers is the name used for those immigrants brought to the United States as children but who remain undocumented, or illegal.

Republicans' 2018 Senate map runs largely through red territory, and leaders are eager to score legislative victories on pocketbook issues, such as overhauling the nation's tax code, before the end of the year. Democrats don't have much leverage in Congress, but one place they do have a lot of power is over a spending bill.

She has talked with restaurant owners who said they would keep their establishments open longer if they had enough employees, she said.

The aide said many Democrats are ready to force the Republicans to pass the budget without Democratic votes.That in turn could give Democrats an important talking point as they seek votes in those 10 districts were the GOP is vulnerable.

Senator John Cornyn, a Republican from Texas, is a member of the Senate Finance, Intelligence, and Judiciary Committees.

SNELL: There's reason to believe a bipartisan solution is possible.

The government has said the maximum stake allowed in FOBTs could be sharply cut over concerns that the terminals fuel addiction. Although there has not been a firm offer, the two companies appear to be positive about the potential for a deal to be done.

Included in that letter to House Speaker Paul Ryan was San Antonio Rep.

Mayor Faulconer urged Congress to pass the Dream Act.

JEREMY ROBBINS: This is not a hard policy issue. Many represent large Latino populations, and urged their own leaders to find a DACA solution before they return to their districts later this month. And so absolutely we think there should be a solution now.

On Tuesday, a bus left Pilsen transporting about 60 activists to Washington DC where they will meet with politicians in the hopes of protecting immigrant rights after the president's decision to terminate the program.

They say they don't want a government shutdown either, but they do want an immigration bill this month. It amounted to a pair of rooms where lawmakers could tape messages to be aired back home.

Two Florida districts targeted by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, held by Rep. Carlos Curbelo and the retiring Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, are 74 and 83 percent Hispanic, respectively.

Voters in vulnerable GOP districts oppose tax bill Giffords targets 8 Republicans on hide and carry in new ads DACA advocates see efforts gaining steam in the House MORE told The Hill he's ready to buck his party's leadership to fight for so-called Dreamers, but thinks Republicans have incentives to extend or expand DACA benefits.
