Government Shutdown Ends With One Clear Loser: Democrats
Government Shutdown Ends With One Clear Loser: Democrats
Lawmakers are set to return to Capitol Hill on Monday in hopes of hashing out a deal
23 January, 2018, 21:15
The elected leaders will return to hashing out a deal on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which protects almost 800,000 so-called "Dreamers" brought to the U.S.as children from deportation.
Schumer warned Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell that he expected Republicans to make good on a pledge to address Democrat concerns over the Deferred Action on Child Arrivals (DACA) program that shields immigrants brought to the country as children from deportation, but expires on March 5.
A group of mostly Democrats and a few Republicans voted against the legislation, which didn't include an immigration measure. He did not follow through on that promise.
"Today's cave by Senate Democrats - led by weak-kneed, right-of-center Democrats - is why people don't believe the Democratic Party stands for anything", said Stephanie Taylor, co-founder of the Progressive Change Campaign Committee in a statement. The shutdown took effect Saturday on the one-year anniversary of the president's inauguration, but the White House maintains that Trump came out the victor in the GOP's standoff with Democrats.
The welcome breakthrough came after three days of fruitful negotiations between a group of senators from both parties determined to reach a compromise.
But when Trump held a bipartisan discussion with lawmakers earlier this month, he signaled that he would sign whatever bill Congress sent him, even if he wasn't "in love with" it and that he would take any backlash from both sides. In talking with his chief of staff, General Kelly, I'm just hopeful we can find that pathway forward.
Notably, numerous Democrats who voted against the agreement included a litany of potential 2020 presidential candidates including Kamala Harris, Bernie Sanders, Kirsten Gillibrand, and Elizabeth Warren.
It is unclear at this point whether Schumer's shift is the product of a decision to beat a strategic retreat from Friday night's hard-line position, or was forced by "centrist" Democratic pressure to cut a deal and end the impasse.
"Unless Speaker Ryan also agrees to allow a vote in the House, Mitch McConnell's hopes and intentions are worthless", Rep.
With Democratic support, a compromise bill keeping the government funded until February 8 passed a key Senate hurdle and was headed for final passage in the chamber, with the shutdown to formally end once the House of Representatives approves the measure.
A Republican aide involved in the talks said that McConnell and his team were considering putting their plan in document form with more detail as a way of convincing some Democrats to support the short-term bill. "I refuse to put the lives of almost 700,000 young people in the hands of someone who has repeatedly gone back on his word", tweeted Harris, staking out turf.
The White House says President Donald Trump has signed a bill reopening the government, ending a 69-hour display of partisan dysfunction after Democrats reluctantly voted to temporarily pay for resumed operations. Even if McConnell does bring the vote to the floor of the Senate, there's no guarantee it will pass.
Schumer accused Trump of failing to help reach a deal. Congressional Republicans appear stable and savvy in this outcome, making them winners. "The Dems have just learned that a Shutdown is not the answer!" he said.
Other Democrats said said it was a losing fight from the start - one where they only could have won with a broad argument about GOP dysfunction hurting voters, not a specific one on immigration.
