Following the meeting, Durbin said he was pleased by the "sense of urgency" by the participants and that they "narrowed down the list of what they are going to discuss in the first phase of immigration, the DACA phase, to border security, chain migration and the diversity visa".
Party leaders from both sides of the aisle have been quietly working to raise stiff spending caps to avert a government shutdown before January 19, when federal agency funding runs dry.
