Lawmakers have just four days left to reach a spending agreement before federal funding runs out and the government shuts down. It's not clear if, as part of any spending agreement, they'll also make a deal to continue deportation protection for young undocumented immigrants under the expiring Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

This segment aired on January 16, 2018.
