Trump: I'm Glad Democrats Came to Their Senses on the Shutdown

The Senate on Monday passed a stopgap funding measure to end a government shutdown that began when members failed to reach a deal on a new spending agreement Friday.

In actuality, Democrats sought to protect the undocumented immigrants known as dreamers, after the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors Act, which earlier was blocked by Senate Republicans. The House is expected to approve the bill soon, the Hill reported.

"Let's step back from the brink", said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Releasing a statement, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said,"The Senate will head to the Office of Management and Budget after the bill is presumably passed by the House, paving the way for President (Donald) Trump's signature probably in the late afternoon, or early evening".

Democrats and Republicans who worked to break the impasse over the shutdown spun their vote to accept a slightly shorter continuing resolution as a victory because of a commitment to turn to immigration.

NPR national political correspondent Mara Liasson is at the White House to talk about all of this.

"We want transparency in what we do, and bipartisanship in our solutions", Pelosi said.

"As I have always said, once the Government is funded, my Administration will work toward solving the problem of very unfair illegal immigration".

"The worst outcome would be to get to March 5 and then try to jam something through that would look like the legislative equivalent of DACA, where we make it constitutional but it's no more certain for these kids", Flake told reporters at the Capitol. In a shutdown, services the government considers "nonessential" are put on hold, and the thousands of government employees who are responsible for these nonessential services are furloughed.

I have no idea what they're going to do over there.

US President Donald Trump was firmly on the side of keeping them out, with an aim to start the construction of his asinine wall between the US and Mexico. But Schumer proceeded knowing that McConnell made a public pledge that if he reneges on, will give Democrats a more credible justification for a shutdown in a few weeks. They mostly grew up in the US. The move to advance the measure was approved overwhelmingly, with a vote of 81-18.

The energy of the progressive grass roots should be seen as a valuable resource for Democrats.

Democratic Senators agreed to a climbdown after refusing to allow passage of a budget deal last week, citing concerns about the lack of continued funding for Obama's signature immigration policy, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals programme (DACA). "They have been waiting far too long to live securely in the only place they have ever called home".
