Mr Schumer said the three-day shutdown was expected to end in a few hours.

After passing in the House of Representatives last week, H.R. 195, a short-term solution to keep the federal government opened until Friday, February 16th, was sent to the Senate. He said they had not caved but received a commitment to vote on some sort of immigration fix for a young group of illegal immigrants brought into the country as children by February 8, when the stop-gap spending bill runs out.

Moderates from both parties pressured leaders to end the shutdown and compromise.

The bill advanced by a vote of 81 to 18, with a handful of rumored Democratic presidential hopefuls voting no. However, the spending bill passed by the Senate is for three weeks, not the four that the House approved.

McConnell attempted to schedule a vote late Sunday night that would end the shutdown, but Minority Schumer objected. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said Democrats would drop their objections to the bill in exchange for GOP assurances that Congress would take up a larger immigration bill in the coming weeks.

Nassar victim says Michigan State billing her

Others expressed concern that any potential deal on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which protects children of undocumented immigrants from deportation, is not guaranteed in the U.S. House.

Essential federal services and military activity are continuing, but even active-duty troops will not be paid until a deal is reached to reopen the U.S. government. Democratic lawmakers said the same, raising questions about Trump's ability to strike an immigration deal despite his campaign-trail promises to be the dealmaker in chief. As I've always said, once the government is funded my administration will work towards solving the problem of very unfair illegal immigration.

"Now those talks can get going again, whether they bear fruit is up to all of us", said Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell, R-KY.

"He called the White House yesterday and said it's over", Durbin said.

McConnell also spoke prior to the vote, saying, "I think if we learned anything during this process, it's that a strategy to shut down the government over an issue of illegal immigration is something the American people didn't understand". But the issue is linked to Trump's demands that Congress also approve funding for a wall along the 3,200-kilometer southern border with Mexico and stiffen other USA immigration policies to thwart more illegal immigration. Hundreds of thousands of federal employees were furloughed and didn't come to work on Monday, mourning military families did not get paid, and federal contractors may see their payments delayed.
