The Hill:

The Trump administration's decision to phase out the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program is sparking a legislative arms race on Capitol Hill.

Both supporters and opponents of DACA are maneuvering for position, underscoring the difficulty lawmakers face in reaching a deal.

But GOP leaders are already laying down one marker, vowing that a fix for DACA must be paired with other immigration reforms.
