Government shutdown looms with no DACA deal in sight

Government shutdown looms with no DACA deal in sight

Trump threw voting in further jeopardy Thursday when he tweeted against including a six-year extension of the Children's Health Insurance Program, which Republican leaders had attached to help attract support, particularly from Democrats who pushed for the program.

House Republicans included funding for the popular low-priced health program for children to put more pressure on Democrats to back the bill ahead of a shutdown deadline Friday. Republican leaders already appeared to lack enough votes to pass the bill without the support of Democrats.

Sens. Tim Kaine, D-Va., Mark Warner, D-Va., and Angus King, I-Maine, all of whom voted for the last short-term spending bill, said they would oppose the current GOP proposal. Trump's historically poor popularity and a string of Democratic special election victories have fueled that party's hopes of capturing control of the House and perhaps the Senate.

This time around, Congress needs to not let anything bad happen to CHIP and pass a long-term funding bill. "But we're going to continue moving forward in that process".

Flake also rejected the president's claim that "Democrats don't really want" a deal.

What are the odds of a government shutdown? "John Cornyn (R-Texas), House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and House Majority Whip Steny H. Hoyer (D-Md.)" - and also a bipartisan Senate group, either of which is more likely to produce a workable immigration accord than the White House, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.). "The Democrats want to shut down the Government over Amnesty for all and Border Security", Trump tweeted Tuesday.

I was originally skeptical of DACA, since I didn't trust government officials, self-serving politicians or Obama-who, despite his eloquence and brilliance, deported an estimated 2.7 million undocumented immigrants-with the personal data of so many undocumented youth who applied, facilitating mass deportations with future administrations, such as the racist Trump administration.

As NPR and other outlets reported last week, it was Trump who rejected a tentative agreement reached by a small, bipartisan group of senators that would have allowed DACA recipients permanent residency in the US and a path to citizenship.

Democrats are withholding support for the stopgap spending bill because they want an immediate deal for the Dreamers, illegal immigrants who came to the children.

It was during that meeting that Trump questioned why the US would want more immigrants from "shithole countries" in Africa.

Not even close. Instead, Durbin and South Carolina Republican Lindsey Graham, among others, agreed to address all of Trump's four pillars -- the ones he spoke about during that occasionally odd and confusing open negotiating session at the White House two days earlier.

If Congress can not reach a deal on immigration, and a budget, they expect a short-term budget deal that would keep the government up and running after Friday. "He fully supports passing this legislation", Ryan countered, noting that he spoke to the president after the tweet was posted.

"I don't know whether it's clear to the president that what we're trying to do is reauthorize CHIP long term, not just 30 days".

After a full day of uncertainty, the House of Representatives on Thursday evening approved a plan to fund the federal government until February 16, sending the measure to the Senate, where the bill is likely to be derailed by strong opposition from Democrats and a few Republicans.

Trump weighed in Thursday, again demanding money for a wall along the southern border with Mexico. "We need to make sure that both sides aren't using this for political gain and we do our job and fix this issue".

Even if legislators do not approve a program to protect the immigrants, deporting them will not be a top federal government priority, according to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen.

Democrats would get what they'd been after with the passage of the Dream Act (or something like it) and, in return, provide the votes for some kind of new border security funding, with a portion of that money going to prop up "the wall".

But: Those same aides acknowledge this could very well shut down the Senate for the rest of 2018, as Democrats (and some Republicans) are keen on resolving the issue - and doing nothing else until it's done - now. Cory Booker, California Sen. Kamala Harris, and New York Sen.

In the Senate, Democrats have pledged to oppose the bill unless it includes protections for recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. Such a bill would gain a majority vote of the entire House and keep the government open but infuriate his conference. Democrats also insist that any budget increases for the military be matched for domestic spending.

Perdue said that "the potential is there" for a deal to protect the "Dreamers" but that Democrats needed to get serious.

But as possible presidential candidates have upped up their criticism, numerous Democrats up for reelection this year have, for the most part, tried to stay out of the spotlight.
