"He should take responsibility for them", Baldwin wrote. "It's not consistent with what the behavior of a president should be". Trump plans to phase out the program completely in March unless Congress replaces it.
On Tuesday night, Trump clarified any uncertain whether funding for the wall was part of border security.
Meanwhile, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services announced Saturday it would begin taking renewal applications from undocumented immigrants seeking to register for the DACA program. "We need our parents, we need our brothers, [and] we need our sisters". People briefed on the conversation also say that during the meeting the president also questioned the need to admit more Haitians to the U.S.
The comments left lawmakers taken aback, according to people familiar with their reactions.
Both sides will have to give a little.
Not long after, Sen. One border state - Arizona - is represented in the group with Flake, who's played a vocal role in demanding a bipartisan process.
We "have an agreement in principle".
"The five white guys I call them", Pelosi, D-Calif., told reporters.
A working group of six U.S. senators said earlier this week that they had reached an agreement, including a solution on continuing the DACA program, but the White House said any agreement must include funding for the border wall.
Some other lawmakers who have been engaged in the negotiations were also optimistic; others said no deal had yet been reached. Some of these lawmakers bridled at the notion that a small group of their colleagues, especially a group that does not include any immigration hard-liners, could come up with a deal and impose it on everyone else.
Another prominent Republican operative, who asked for anonymity, agreed that statewide GOP candidates can't run entirely away from Trump.

We would be happy with a straight-up trade of a DACA amnesty, even one broadly defined, for a mandatory E-Verify system for employers making new hires, one that would help dry up the jobs magnet for illegal immigrants. "We just have to get it done", he said.
Other efforts include bipartisan talks through the Problem Solvers Caucus. The pact also includes restrictions on immigrants' abilities to bring relatives to the USA and termination of a visa lottery system that has helped gain entry for people from African and other diverse countries.
Republican Sens. David Perdue of Georgia and Tom Cotton of Arkansas, who attended the meeting, said in a statement that they "do not recall the president saying these comments specifically". They have good reason to not trust Democrats to keep their word on border security if they negotiate a two-step DACA-immigration deal.
To the editor: It seems incredible that Democrats in Congress are more concerned about the fate of approximately 800,000 so-called Dreamers than they are about other pressing issues.
It has won bipartisan support, a significant feat for any immigration measure in Washington.
"I'm hopeful it will lead to a breakthrough", said Graham, who has forged a close relationship with Trump despite their prior political rivalry. "It merely delays it for an extremely small class of persons".
"How do six people bind the other 94 in the Senate?" That group met for the first time this week. Cotton can present his proposal.
United We Dream also fired off a tweet praising conservative Sen.
"Following comments by the president, I said my piece directly to him yesterday. I'm dying to look at it". "It's the only game in town".
