Senate Democrats are reportedly willing to drop protections for DACA recipients from their list of demands for upcoming budget discussions.

That's according to a Politico report. The shift in focus comes after Senate Republicans promised Democrats a debate over an immigration bill next month.

Sens. Dick Durbin, a Democrat, and Lindsey Graham, a Republican, introduced an immigration bill last week separate from Monday's stopgap spending bill.

But earlier this week, the White House said that bill was unacceptable and Thursday night it proposed its own immigration plan. That proposal would require funding for President Trump's so-called border wall.
