Congress has until Thursday to enact a budget and Republicans have betrayed a promise to allow a vote to extend protection for immigrants who were brought to America as children and do not know life anywhere else.
A program to defer deportations for nearly 800,000 such people was created by former President Barack Obama but President Donald Trump created a crisis by ending it.
The class has been dubbed ‘Dreamers’ because they hope to someday share in the American dream by being given a path to citizenship.
