Democratic U.S. Senator Joe Donnelly spoke with News 18 about the topic.

Donnelly hopes Congress will come to an agreement on the issue. He said many of the DACA recipients came to the U.S. when they were young, earned degrees and now contribute to society.
Donnelly said he will continue working to protect them.

"I'm hopeful we can solve that problem, while at the same time also making sure that our border is stronger and the border has more support," Donnelly said.

Donnelly said he's always been in support of a stronger border.

He hopes Congress can find a way to continue DACA while keeping our nation's borders secure.
