Welcome Back, Congress

Congress returns from summer vacation with a lot of homework. What does it need to get done and what might go undone? Some major items on President Trump's agenda are in focus this term, including tax reform, military spending, the federal budget and the immigration policy known as DACA. The Trump administration announced today that it's ending DACA in six months — enough time for Congress to find a fix. We answer your questions about what Congress is facing, the options on the table and the politics behind doing its job with Major Garrett, chief White House correspondent for CBS News, Susan Davis, congressional correspondent for NPR and Lauren Fox, congressional reporter for CNN.
