Shutdown Day 2: Congress Seems Far Apart on a Resolution

Shutdown Day 2: Congress Seems Far Apart on a Resolution

The bill under consideration at that time would reopen the government through February 8, giving the Senate time to work on immigration issues, including the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Leader McConnell has found this out.

"Great to see how hard Republicans are fighting for our Military and Safety at the Border".

The president tweeted Sunday that Republicans should use the "Nuclear Option" if the stalemate continues. "And we remain to continue to be anxious to reach a deal on DACA and we look forward to resuming the negotiations as soon as the Senate Democrats reopen the government".

Democratic and Republican leaders agreed to reopen negotiations on Saturday and said they were committed to getting a quick agreement.

As the meal progressed, an outline of an agreement was struck, according to one person familiar with the discussion: Mr. Schumer said yes to higher levels for military spending and discussed the possibility of fully funding the president's wall on the southern border with Mexico.

Democrats accused the Republicans of poisoning the chances for a deal and pandering to Trump's populist base by refusing to fund a programme that protects about 700,000 so-called dreamers - illegal immigrants who first arrived in the United States as children - from deportation.

During Saturday's House and Senate sessions - where no obvious progress was made - Democrats continued to argue that Republicans were the problem, since the GOP is in charge of the House, Senate and White House.

'Jersey Shore' star Mike Sorrentino ready to resolve his tax situation
While his brother's deal relates to tax-year 2010, The Situation's plea covers taxable income he earned in 2011. Additional charges against the brothers were announced previous year .

Even though the Democrats in 2013 changed the rule that allowed filibusters for lower-court and appeals-court judge nominees and even though McConnell expanded that rule in 2017 to cover Supreme Court justice nominees, he doesn't want to get end the longtime Senate quirk altogether.

McConnell is expected to hold a vote on the continuing resolution at 1:00 a.m. on Monday, although NBC News noted that it is unclear whether the measure has the 60 votes it needs to pass.

"Let's end this foolishness", McConnell said on the Senate floor.

The source close to the White House told CNN that the White House believes Schumer will press for some concessions for "a few days if that long" as they work to strike a budget deal.

President Trump was supposed to wake up at his Mar-a-Lago estate, but instead awoke in the White House residence - tweeting about the shutdown dawning on the anniversary of his inauguration.

Republicans have labeled it the Schumer Shutdown in reference to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, who said earlier in the day that Trump rejected two bipartisan deals to get everyone back to work.
