The Senate sells out Dreamers in deal to end government shutdown

Democrat Senate leader Chuck Schumer says he and Donald Trump made

Republicans reject Trump's call for shutdown rule changes

In a second tweet, he said, "Democrats have shut down our government in the interests of their far left base".

According to CNN, Democrats remain tired that House Republicans will follow McConnell's lead to take up DACA.

"Negotiating with this White House is like negotiating with Jell-O - it's next to impossible", Schumer said, suggesting that Trump's own wishes are frequently derailed by immigration hard-liners like chief of staff John Kelly, senior adviser Stephen Miller or GOP Sen.

As the Senate convened, the chamber's top Democrat Chuck Schumer announced that members of his party would vote with ruling Republicans to end the shutdown on day three, after a weekend of frustrating talks on Capitol Hill.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., introduced the deal, which provides full funding for the federal government through February 8 and reauthorizes the Children's Health Insurance Program, or CHIP, saying "we need to move forward". The Dems just want illegal immigrants to pour into our nation unchecked. Lawmakers had until midnight yesterday (Sunday) to pass the bill but were unable to reach a breakthrough.

Delaware Democratic Sen. Chris Coons, at about the same time, was critical on "Fox News Sunday" of Trump's tweet, including its suggestion about the nuclear option, considering the 60-vote threshold has for decades provided the Senate's minority party with some check on the majority party's power.

President Donald Trump says if the government shutdown drags on, Republicans should consider changing the rules in the Senate to make it easier to pass legislation without votes from Democrats.

It is true that the short-term funding bill that advanced in the Senate, called a continuing resolution, needed 60 votes in order to avoid a filibuster.

Following a weekend of intense negotiations that appeared to yield little progress, the Senate will reconvene at noon today, in a bid to find a solution to the stand-off which has led to the closure of federal agencies and left some government workers without pay.

Sanders maintains that government funding legislation must provide legal status for the roughly 700,000 young immigrants brought illegally to the U.S.as children.

"We're waiting for the Senate Democrats to open the government back up", said Ryan.

The U.S. Senate has passed a deal to end the shutdown of the federal government, now in its third day.

Recordings of the message were shared on social media along with commentary on what it says about the Trump administration.

Democrats would come away from this deal with nothing but a promise, maybe, of a future vote. "We don't have that Senate Democrat support, which is why we are where we are". Five Democrats from states won by Mr Trump broke ranks in a vote Friday.

After the government shut down, the former host of "The Apprentice" wasted no time attacking his political rivals and blaming them for the government not being open.
