US Senator Kamala Harris says she won't vote for an end-of-year spending plan unless the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program is fixed. The California Democrat says the state has an outsized stake in the outcome of DACA because California has far more Dreamers than any other state.

"They are in our colleges. They are in graduate school. They are serving in the military. They are working in fortune 100 companies. They are contributing. And they're playing by the rules," says Harris.

Earlier this year President Donald Trump announced he would move to end DACA with a six-month delay to allow Congress to come up with a legislative solution. President Trump has pushed to tie a DACA compromise to tougher immigration security measures.
