Dems agree to end government shutdown

Enactment by Trump of the bill allowed the government to reopen fully on Tuesday and keep the lights on through February 8, when the Republican-led Congress will have to revisit budget and immigration policy, two disparate issues that have become closely linked.

The bill needed 60 votes to pass the procedural hurdle in the 100-member Senate, meaning Republicans - who have a one-seat majority - could not manoeuvre on their own. After two days of bickering and freezing up the USA government, Democrats signed off on a spending bill not dramatically differently from the one on the table Friday. They had been covered by the Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, started under President Obama but ordered ended by President Trump. Democrats want to give those immigrants who have always been here a path to citizenship; Some Republicans support some type of protections but want to curb legal and illegal immigration as part of any deal, while other GOP lawmakers disparage any legal status as "amnesty". I don't trust the Republicans and I don't trust (Senate Majority Leader Mitch) McConnell with just a promise.

Early polls showed that Trump and Republican leaders were drawing most of the blame from American voters, but some Democrats anxious they would pay a higher political cost if the shutdown dragged on. "As I've always said, once the government is funded, my administration will work towards solving the problem of very unfair illegal immigration".

"Let's step back from the brink", McConnell said.

"If that's not enough for Democrats, then we're in this for the long haul", the aide said.

The Senate voted to reopen the government on Monday. Immigrants under the protection of the program could possibly face deportation since U.S. Donald J. Trump rescinded the program last September 2017.

"We will not negotiate on the status of unlawful immigrants while Senator Schumer and the Democrats hold the government for millions of Americans and our troops hostage", Ms Sanders said.

During his speech Monday, Schumer said Trump walked away from several bipartisan deals to fund the government and that the most recent agreement the president rejected before the government shut down included money for a border wall.

Patriots more than a faceless opponent for Eagles
He exploded for two touchdown catches in an improbable comeback over the Ravens, and any criticism fell to the wayside. The last time a number was this big was in 2009, when the Steelers were 7-point favorites over the Cardinals.

The President otherwise remained uncharacteristically quiet, heeding the advice of senior advisers who argued that he has the upper hand over Mr Schumer and the Democrats, and that they would soon be forced to capitulate.

It appeared that Democratic resolve was beginning to waver, with growing worries that a prolonged shutdown could prove to be an electoral headache for the party just as it has grown more confident about prospects in November midterm elections.

Trump might love the attention he gains from an over-the-top tweet, but there is evidence that not saying much is actually more helpful to him politically. She added that senators who voted Monday in favor of the deal "are not resisting Trump, they are enablers".

Ahead of the deal, Trump had goaded Democrats from the sidelines, accusing them of shutting down the government to win concessions on immigration, in service of "their far left base".

It is inconceivable to us that Republican "leaders" can not grasp how strongly President Trump's message resonates with their base, what a strong political position they now hold vis-à-vis the Democrats, and how the future of their majority now balances on a knife's edge.

Nelson is among a group of 10 Democratic senators up for re-election in states won by Donald Trump in 2016; he was undoubtedly feeling pressure to agree to a deal ending the 48-hour standoff.

"We need a little bit more clarity", Sen.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., answers to reporters as he walks to his office after speaking on the Senate floor at Capitol, Sunday, Jan. 21, 2018, in Washington. "I told my department heads to look into certain things and come back to me if anything bad comes up, but I haven't heard anything yet".
