The president was reportedly pleased when a Democratic lawmaker said he could "call the bill whatever you want, Mr. President".

The uncertaintly felt by Republicans - was also one felt by Democrats - and was fueled throughout the day by the President, as he put out a variety of messages on immigration that were seemingly at odds.

Democratic aides said that although there was no final deal, an agreement had been reached.

"Mostly it's emotional support", Middlehof said, "because of the uncertainty".
