Cory Booker, who called the issue one of "basic decency and morality" and last month, and said "I want solutions to protect these kids, and won't vote for a spending bill that doesn't include one".

Evelyn Valdez-Ward is a PhD student in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of California, Irvine, and a DACA recipient. But Democrats' willingness to cooperate will likely hinge on how extensive those protections are as numerous aforementioned progressive lawmakers have established a "clean" DACA extension, absent any security measures or merit based reforms, as their ultimate goal.

At Sacramento State, University President Robert Nelsen put his signature on a petition to Congress, urging lawmakers to take action before 2017 ends.

"I believe I'm American in every way, the only thing that's missing is my immigration status, and I just feel very American, and I want to stay here and I want to keep contributing". "Not acting is creating understandable uncertainty and anxiety amongst immigrant communities".

Democrats say that's wrong on multiple counts - that they don't want immigrants streaming into the country illegally, nor do they want a shutdown.

"Certainly, we want to find a bipartisan solution and we definitely do not want to get into a debate about shutting the government down", Denham said.
