Republican U.S. Senator Jeff Flake said on Thursday that a bipartisan group of senators has reached a deal on protecting young immigrants, but a Democratic Senate aide disputed that any agreement had been secured.

Flake told reporters on Capitol Hill the bipartisan working group in the Senate has reached a deal to continue protecting from deportation hundreds of thousands of young people brought to the United States as children, MSNBC reported, quoting him as saying. "We've pretty much got a bill."

However, a spokesman for Democratic U.S. Senator Dick Durbin, who is part of the group, told Reuters talks were ongoing for the "Dreamer" immigration bill.
