Others say: Democrats caved, Dreamers lost

Schumer and company had insisted that the spending bill needed to get government in full operation had to include provisions for almost 800,000 illegal immigrants permitted to stay in the United States through the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. That is, would Speaker Paul Ryan be willing to bring to the floor a bill that the House Freedom Caucus strongly opposed?

Stephanie Taylor, of the Progressive Change Campaign Committee, said: "Today's cave by Senate Democrats - led by weak-kneed, right-of-centre Democrats - is why people don't believe the Democratic Party stands for anything".

Trump's chief of staff, John Kelly, was slated to meet with lawmakers on Capitol Hill on Thursday, a senior White House official said. For those who think that Democrats "caved", 84% of voters polled said that the shutdown was unnecessary.

"The Republican majority now has 16 days to work with us to write a bill that can get 60 votes [in the 100-member Senate] and prevent Dreamers [young immigrants] from being deported", Democratic Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of NY said.

"I expect the majority leader to fulfill his commitment to the Senate, to me and to the bipartisan group, and abide by this agreement".

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said Wednesday talks on immigration and border security are "starting over" after he and the White House have exchanged a series of blows about President Donald Trump's border wall. Lindsey Graham is on the immigration issue. He says the offer was made around noon Friday as part of an effort to avoid a shutdown and was withdrawn late Sunday. "The question now is how do you wrap the rest of it around the deal".

Why? Because the protection of DACA and CHIP - as well as paying those who protect and defend our freedom every day - are issues most Americans can agree upon.

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.

Some Democrats said they voted for the plan because they were growing antsy about continuing a shutdown with little optimism about resolving the immigration deadlock in the coming days. Now disenfranchised, Democrats make the same convincing appeals that they'd shrugged off almost a decade prior, and Republicans are doing the same. Instead, they threw away their only substantive political leverage, demoralized their base, and got nothing but empty promises in return. But their retreat reflected recognition they are politically vulnerable to GOP criticism, especially in pro-Trump states where Democratic senators face tough re-election fights. He has offered mixed signals about whether he would back a measure akin to what centrist Republican and Democrats favor, leaving some lawmakers not to trust his word, either.

And he understands that immigration reform is as much about what to do about illegals in the country as it is about security and tougher entry standards. Other versions of the bill would shrink the pool of eligibility.

Trump's pronouncements came as the White House announced it would be unveiling a legislative framework on immigration next week that it hopes can pass both the House and the Senate. "And perhaps a bill that I vote on to start the process in the House is not one I vote for in final passage, but it's the way that it's supposed to work".
