United States senate votes to reopen government for two weeks

Lawmakers are set to return to Capitol Hill on Monday in hopes of hashing out a deal Lawmakers are set to return to Capitol Hill on Monday in hopes of hashing out a deal

Schumer told 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.

The Senate cleared a key procedural hurdle on a deal to fund the government on Monday, taking a large step toward ending the federal government shutdown.

Notably, numerous Senate Democrats who voted against the funding agreement included a litany of potential 2020 presidential candidates, including Kamala Harris, Bernie Sanders, Kirsten Gillibrand and Elizabeth Warren.

Harris is not sold on McConnell's word either, telling reporters that " it would be foolhardy to believe that he made a commitment".

"I am pleased Democrats in Congress have come to their senses", Trump said in a defiant statement, as lawmakers moved to get hundreds of thousands of federal government employees back to work. They are no closer to that than they were when the last temporary funding bill - the one that set up the January 18 deadline - passed back in December.

Sixteen of them voted against the measure (along with Republicans Mike Lee and Rand Paul, who generally oppose stopgap spending bills); other than Dianne Feinstein and Jon Tester (who was focused all along on the absence of community health funding in the bill), these dissenters were from the progressive wing of the Senate Democratic Caucus.

On Monday the Senate voted 81 to 18 and the House 266 to 150 to reopen the federal government and fund it through February 8, as well as to stop holding hostage the health care of nearly nine million poor kids - and not a moment too soon.

Both senators from Colorado, Republican Cory Gardner and Democrat Michael Bennet, voted yes.

Arsenal considering move for PSG's Lucas Moura
He has made just 6 appearances this term, across all competitions, in which he has scored and assisted one goal apiece. Spurs are yet to make a signing in the January transfer window, but are thought to have money to spend.

Information from CNN and the Associated Press was used in this report. "We will make a long-term deal on immigration if, and only if, it is good for our country", Trump said.

A block of liberal Democrats - some of them 2020 presidential hopefuls - stuck to their opposition. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., and Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass.

The U.S. government can not fully operate without funding bills that are voted in Congress regularly.

Now Republicans have just 17 days until the next deadline. On Monday, he accused Democrats of prioritizing services and security for noncitizens over US citizens.

"Now those talks can get going again", said McConnell.

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

If Republicans can't hold a majority in the Senate, they may have to switch to very short temporary funding bills, and more to the point they may have to actually negotiate a deal, both on DACA and on the full-year spending bill.

"If he does not, of course, and I expect he will, he will have breached the trust of not only the Democratic senators but members of his own party as well", Schumer said.
