Lankford objects to 3-year border and DACA extension

Senator Flake asked unanimous consent the Senate proceed to Calendar #300, H.R.1551 (a tax vehicle) and agree to a Flake amendment that is the text of Calendar #338, S.2464, a bill to improve border security and to provide conditional provision residence to certain long-term residents who entered the United States as children.
 
Senator Lankford asked that the senator modify his request so that the Senate resume consideration of H.R.2579; that the pending amendments be withdrawn with the exception of the Grassley amendment #1959 (“SECURE and SUCCEED Act”); that the Grassley amendment be agreed to; and the bill, as amended, be considered read a third time and passed.
 
Senator Flake objected to the modification and Senator Lankford objected to the original request.
