White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders told the press in a briefing on Wednesday that the President is "hopeful" for a deal on DACA with Congress.

Why it matters: Congress has until Thursday at midnight to finalize the latest proposed budget deal, or risk another government shutdown. House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi said Wednesday morning that she would not support a deal that didn't include legislation to protect Dreamers, while Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said they reached a deal on a two-year funding deal that excludes a DACA provision.
