NPR's Mary Louise Kelly speaks with Sen. Charlie Dent, R-Pa., about how the House is looking to pass a DACA bill. He has asked Speaker Ryan to bring two bipartisan bills to a vote, which he thinks have a chance to pass.
The government shutdown ended with a promise that the Senate will take up the fate of DACA recipients next month. But that outcome was still unsatisfactory for many immigrant advocates because they've heard this before. Some have been fighting for the DREAM Act since they were teenagers and are now nearing 40.
