FILE -- Supporters of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program occupy the office of Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.) in protest on Capitol Hill in Washington, Dec. 18, 2017. The window for legislative action to protect undocumented immigrants brought to the country as children will close by the middle of January 2018, three former officials said in a letter. Nelson is among the Democrats who have asked President Trump to extend the renewal deadline. (Tom Brenner/The New York Times)
