President Donald Trump’s plan to reshape the US immigration system and fund his border wall has been rejected by the Senate, ultimately leaving Congress with no clear path to protect young undocumented immigrants - so-called dreamers - from deportation.

In a rebuke to the President, the Senate voted 39-60 against a proposal backed by Mr Trump. Senators also shot down two other bipartisan proposals that the President suggested he would veto.
