Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) on Thursday said a bipartisan group of senators is getting closer to a deal to provide protection to young immigrants known as Dreamers and that would also include border security provisions.
"We've got this bipartisan group. We are at a deal. ... It's the only game in town," Flake told reporters.
Asked what was the biggest remaining hurdle, Flake pointed to a border security package "and what's sufficient. That's what we're working on but we've pretty much got a bill."
Other senators indicated they did not believe the group was as close to a deal as Flake indicated.
