The Congressional Budget Office has said the Treasury can use those measures through late March or early April. "They want to have illegal immigrants, in many cases people that we don't want in our country, they want to have illegal immigrants pouring into our country, bringing with them crime, tremendous amounts of crime".

He says: "We're all here as a very friendly, well-unified group".

Democrats are seeking permanent legal status for so-called DREAMers as part of a long-term government funding deal. The Senate approval comes about an hour after the House backed the measure.

Rep. Jim Jordan of OH, the former chair of both the Republican Study Committee and the hardline conservative House Freedom Caucus, told USA TODAY he was supportive of a separate defense department funding bill.

Schumer and House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi skipped a meeting with him last week after Trump tweeted that he doubted he could reach any deal with them. House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi staked out a hard line on Thursday and insisted that any year-end deal would include help for immigrants brought to the US illegally as children.

"It's kind of just basic governing, is keeping government going while we negotiate the finer details", Ryan told reporters Thursday morning.

Top Republicans delayed a planned House vote on a short-term budget bill Tuesday to give themselves time to quell party divisions and avert a partial government shutdown by the weekend.

"It could happen", Trump said during a Cabinet meeting at the White House, in response to a reporter's question about the Friday deadline for a spending bill to fund the government.

Despite having to push back the timing of the bill, House Speaker Paul Ryan told reporters he was optimistic they'd have enough votes to get legislation through the House.

Walker said Ryan also committed to seek to include disaster relief spending in the December 22 spending bill, as well as an effort to cut $190 billion in entitlement spending over 10 years through "some kind of work requirement for capable-bodied adults with no dependents". But lawmakers and President Donald Trump still have longer-range disputes to settle over spending, immigration and other issues before they can declare budget peace.

The two Democrats said in a statement that nothing specific had been agreed at the meeting, which included a briefing from Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis about military issues.

In order to raise spending levels for the military and domestic programs for a longer-term spending deal, both chambers have to reach an agreement to lift spending limits set by a 2011 law.
