Federal Government Shuts Down Amid Partisan Disputes Over Immigration

This was apparently lost on Trump, who, at the Tuesday White House meeting on gang violence, said a shutdown was a viable options if Democrats did not acquiesce to his demands for stricter border security.

An unexpected announcement of an agreement between top Democrats and President Trump, a quick reversal from the White House, a government shutdown, and a meeting where Trump reportedly described particular countries using vulgar language.

But it won important backing from Democratic Senator Dick Durbin, who has waged a long battle in Congress to help Dreamers.

The federal government shutdown last month led to promises to find a permanent solution for the program, which is set to end on March 5.

The pool of almost 2 million immigrants is larger than the one to which President Donald Trump has offered his support for resolution of their status.

It does not offer a sweeping overhaul of the immigration system and does not include funding for the wall, but calls for a way for Dreamers to avoid deportation and earn citizenship, while also bolstering border security. Trump calls a bill without wall money "a waste of time". "It means we'll be able stop Donald Trump from putting all his junk on the floor and stop the anti-LGBT cascade of things that come into the United States Senate". Chris Coons, D-Del., said they were proposing legislation that would provide a pathway to legal status - potentially including citizenship - for immigrants who entered the USA illegally as children, known as "Dreamers".

Low application rates among Dreamers who are not from Mexico and Central America are also a factor, Capps says.

Trump's statement came Monday as two senators planned to introduce compromise legislation that would protect immigrants who entered the country illegally as children.

House passes bill to ban relationships between lawmakers and their staff
John Conyers Jr. of MI , both Democrats, announced their resignations after being accused of inappropriate behavior, as did Rep. At issue is a 1995 law that determines how reports of harassment, discrimination , and other workplace issues are processed.

That's separate from the funding deadline facing Congress on February 8. A federal judge has indefinitely blocked Trump from terminating the program's protections, blunting the deadline's immediate impact. She added that she believes there is bipartisan support for a deal. "Why not. They certainly didn't seem to love our country very much". "We're making progress on a spending deal that would increase the caps for both military and middle class priorities on the domestic side that Democrats have been fighting for". The President is "unlikely to wave March 5th deadline", an administration official said.

Trump appeared to lose patience over a Congress still deadlocked on immigration.

To bring an end to last month's brief shutdown, lawmakers approved a temporary spending bill that keeps the government open through the end of Thursday.

But the bill did not include the estimated $30 billion the president wants to enhance security and build the wall he promised on the campaign trail. At the same time he has given mixed messages about the future of the hundreds of thousands of DACA participants.

"Make a deal!" the president said in a tweet on Monday.

Here's how The Nation last July reported on Kelly being moved from Homeland Security chief to Trump Chief of Staff: "Kelly did such an efficient job implementing Donald Trump's anti-immigration agenda that he's getting promoted".

"This is just one of many such preventable tragedies", Trump said on Twitter about the accident that also killed the Uber driver of the vehicle Jackson was riding in.
