Despite six senators claiming they've reached a bipartisan deal to protect Obama's Dreamers, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters, "There has not been a deal reached yet."
From Dailymail.co.uk: The White House created chaos over immigration Thursday afternoon as Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders dismissed senators' claims they had a biparsian deal on 'Dreamers.'
Six senators boasted they had a deal in place that would solve the issue of what to do with hundreds of thousands of people brought to the U.S. illegally as children and whose legal status granted under the Obama administration is about to expire.
But when Huckabee Sanders was asked about the deal at the White House press briefing she told reporters, 'There has not been a deal reached yet.'
Shortly after the briefing, Sens. Dick Durbin, Democrat from Illinois, and Cory Gardner, Republican from Colorado, tweeted boasting about the deal.
'Several of my colleagues and I have reached an agreement that reflects the discussion we had this week with @realDonaldTrump on a solution for Dreamers and border security,' Gardner wrote, sharing a statement that was co-signed by five of his colleagues.

Six senators have signed off on an agreement that would shield Obama's Dreamers from deportation.
The deal is now waiting for President Trump's approval.
From Politico: A bipartisan group of six senators has reached a deal that would shield “Dreamers” from deportation and make other changes to immigration laws and border security — but the framework has yet to win over the White House and other key players on Capitol Hill.
As of Wednesday night, multiple sources said the six senators had signed off on an agreement and were waiting for input from the administration on whether President Donald Trump would accept it. So far, they do not have that approval.
“We are, you know, we're at a deal,” Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), who had been involved in the negotiations, said Thursday. “And so we'll be talking to the White House about that, and I hope we can move forward with it. It's the only game in town. There's no other bill."
The group includes Flake and Sens. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Cory Gardner (R-Colo.), Michael Bennet (D-Colo.) and Bob Menendez (D-N.J.).
