Congress passes deal to end government shutdown, sends bill to president

And with a vote of 50 to 49 it did not pass there, so in the early hours of Saturday, January 20th, the United States government officially shutdown. Schumer claims McConnell made an "agreement" in exchange for Democrat votes on the issue.

The GOP has pledged that DACA bills will be drafted in both houses of Congress with an open-amendment process, a measure that moderates and civil libertarians in both parties pushed for over the weekend.

Politico first reported that Schumer had taken the wall funding off the negotiating table. "They make bipartisan progress harder - not easier - to achieve". "This time, they're holding millions of paychecks, and just like anyone else, we have bills to pay". Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said the agreement was reached despite Trump. Sens. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Dianne Feinstein of California, Kirsten Gillibrand of NY and Cory Booker of New Jersey voted no, as did Independent Bernie Sanders of Vermont.

Republican Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) told CNBC on Monday he believes an immigration deal will happen before the next government shutdown deadline in three weeks.

By the time Obama got around to immigration legislation, Republicans had retaken the House. They demonstrated consistency in message, willingness to govern and true leverage over the immigration debate. In doing so, Senate Democrats temporarily gave up their fight for Dreamers.

UTEP Executive Vice President Richard Adauto said that the university will support DACA students and encourages them to stay informed of their rights. Trump signed the legislation Monday afternoon.

"Look, what the president did clearly worked", said White House press secretary Sarah Sanders.

The last USA government shutdown was in 2013, when some 800,000 federal workers were put on furlough.

The Senate voted Monday to pass a bill that would extend government funding through February 8.

Sunday morning, the fragile outlines of a potential deal seemed to be taking shape.

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard voted against Congress's 4th short-term spending bill in 5 months that fails to include a year-long budget for our military and government agencies, funding for community health centers, and a permanent fix for our country's DREAMers.

"Today is a day to celebrate", Republican Sen.

The deal is a short-term fix, funding the government through February 8, with ongoing negotiations on immigration and federal spending.

President Donald Trump officially reopened the US government Monday evening after the US House of Representatives approved a temporary spending bill that successfully passed the Senate earlier in the day.

The 18 votes against the shutdown deal included 16 Democrats and conservative Republican Sens.
