As the Senate voted 97-1 on Monday to move past the first procedural hurdle in the way of an immigration debate on the Senate floor, Republican Senators made clear they were not interested in a lengthy debate on DACA, as they pressed Democrats to simply accept a plan offered by PresidentDonald Trump on illegal immigrant Dreamers, arguing no other measure would get through the U.S. House and garner the President's support.

The March 5 deadline, which Trump created previous year when he set the deadline and said Congress needed to pass legislation before then to restore protection for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients, was also in question Tuesday, as New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman won a preliminary injunction in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York blocking Trump's order to end DACA on that date.
