United States federal employees to return after three days shutdown


On Monday, he accused Democrats of prioritizing services and security for noncitizens over USA citizens.

There have been four government shutdowns since 1990. The government was shut down for a mere three days. "And that has been a controversial issue because there's many of us who believe that it has limited value in keeping our border safe". Lindsey Graham of SC told reporters, appearing alongside GOP Sens. Susan Collins of ME said. "Here's what I predict".

Jessica Vaughan, director of policy studies at the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), said, "It's starting to look like Chuck Schumer and some of the other dreamer advocates are going to be willing to sacrifice reaching a deal that will give amnesty to the dreamers out of - just to spite the president". The Senate vote was 81-18.

The path ahead, though, remains hard with some 17 days to reach consensus on major outstanding issues, including budget spending levels, disaster relief and opioid crisis funding.

"That basically sets the DACA discussion back", he told reporters.

GREENE: All right. Speaking about this moment - the government shutdown is over and where Democrats go from here - with Mo Elleithee. But more talks are needed.

Democratic Sen. Jon Tester of Montana voted no on the procedural motion to re-open the government - the only no vote among 10 incumbent Democrats facing re-election this year in states won by Trump in 2016.

The shutdown undercut Trump's self-crafted image as a dealmaker who would fix the broken culture in Washington.

The White House defended Trump's hands-off approach to the negotiations, one out of character for a president who made his reputation as the master of "The Art of the Deal", as he titled one of his books.

Look at the positives, we took 20 wickets: Dhoni
South Africa did that best and India - despite apparently being gifted a "subcontinent" wicket by the errant groundsman - didn't. In their four encounters here in Johannesburg‚ India have won one with the other three matches ending in draws.

Instead of a wall along the entire span, "we need 700 more miles of barrier", Kelly said - a concession that a physical barrier does not need to stretch the entire length of the border.

It is inconceivable to us that Republican "leaders" can not grasp how strongly President Trump's message resonates with their base, what a strong political position they now hold vis-à-vis the Democrats, and how the future of their majority now balances on a knife's edge.

Less than 24 hours after the Senate reached a compromise ending the short-lived shutdown of the federal government, NBC News and their partners at SurveyMonkey have results from a poll asking Americans who they blame for it happening.

Early Tuesday, meanwhile, Trump tweeted that "nobody knows for sure that the Republicans and Democrats will be able to reach a deal on DACA by February 8, but everyone will be trying". Acosta, the network's chief White House correspondent, has aggressively reported on the Trump White House, and confronted the president on his constant criticism of his CNN and the news media in general. We're not in the majority.

While McConnell's commitment falls far short of what the vast majority of Democrats want, there's some GOP hope they can get enough to move forward - and notably split the caucus. An aide said the offer was withdrawn on Sunday.

The House measure would allow Dreamers to renew their legal status for three years, instead of putting them on a pathway to citizenship, and would call for hiring 10,000 more agents at U.S. borders while shutting down some visa programs and taking other steps to find people who are in the country illegally. You have Republicans who are now nearly doing a victory dance saying that the Democrats were playing political games holding the government shutdown for several days - any sense for who came out ahead here?

And in a tweet late Monday, he again cried victory over the Democrats.

It generally requires 60 senators to advance legislation in the Senate, and Republicans now only hold a 51-49 majority. To what extent did the Democrats cave and conversely, what are the Republicans trying to say when Republican Senate leader Mitch McConnell stated they had "come to an arrangement" to negotiate on the Democrats'?
