The pushback was strong enough that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who was involved in negotiating the compromise, was so moved by the frustration when she presented the deal to her caucus that she took the House floor for a record-breaking eight hours straight on Wednesday, reading stories of DACA recipients.
Pelosi took to the House floor, promising to speak for hours, and said she would oppose that almost-completed budget pact even though it would boost funding for many domestic priorities favoured by Democrats.
He acknowledged why some of his colleagues chose to vote for the bill, which included disaster relief for areas hit by hurricanes last fall, as well as funding for community health centers and veterans health care.

The measure, aides said, also contains nearly $90 billion in overdue disaster aid and an increase in the government borrowing cap that would prevent a first-ever USA government default on its obligations.
The budget deal, which was proposed by Senate leaders on Wednesday, will require Democratic support to pass the House, so the House Democratic leader's comments make the plan's future unclear.
Some scoffed at Ms Pelosi's speech, meant to elicit a promise from House Speaker Paul Ryan to allow a vote on subsequent legislation to protect the younger immigrants. "These are the reasons I am voting against this bill".
In the meantime, Congress is also working on a short-term spending measure to keep the government open past a Thursday night deadline.
At the White House, President Donald Trump appeared to hold out the possibility of a shutdown if lawmakers don't come up with a deal on immigration.
Senate Democratic leaders have dropped their strategy of using the funding fight to extract concessions on immigration, specifically on seeking extended protections for the Dreamer immigrants.
Aides in both parties said the budget measure may also contain a provision to raise the government's $20.5 trillion borrowing limit.
