Gutiérrez: Trump Wants to End Legal Immigration to the US

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said he and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell had "come to an arrangement", with Schumer saying he believed there was a "real pathway" to get a bill dealing with immigration on the floor of the Senate. In addition, the Republicans agreed to take up legislation that would protect DREAMers from deportation if their status wasn't addressed within the next month.

One of the most vocal immigrant advocates in the Senate, Harris said in a statement that McConnell's promise on DACA "fell far short of the ironclad guarantee I needed to support a stopgap spending bill". That bill would have kept the government running until mid-February - one week longer than McConnell's new proposal - and also extended CHIP for 6 years.

"As the government shutdown continues into Sunday afternoon, constituents wanting to leave a comment for the White House are faced with a rather divisive answering machine message".

White House Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney predicted on Sunday that the government shutdown could last more than a week.

McConnell dismissed the suggestion, noting that the rule will be welcomed once the Republicans become the minority in the Senate. The White House dismissed such an offer, instead demanding a multi-year package for the administration's signature issue.

Senate Republicans and Democrats failed late on Sunday to reach a compromise to end the shutdown, which began at midnight on Friday as a result of an impasse over negotiations on immigration.

"It all really stems from the president, whose inability to clinch a deal has created the Trump shutdown", Schumer said.

However, should these issues not be resolved by the time the funding bill before us expires on February 8, 2018, assuming that the government remains open, it would be my intention to proceed to legislation that would address DACA, border security, and related issues.

Congress staged a weekend session to show voters it was trying to resolve the stalemate, which led to the closure of many government agencies in a striking display of Washington dysfunction.

Democrats have said short-term spending legislation must include protections for illegal immigrants brought to the United States as children, known as "Dreamers". "So we will see sometime today whether or not they have the votes for that [in the Senate]". Over the weekend, the White House indicated it would not negotiate over immigration while the government was closed.

The last government shutdown, in October, 2013, lasted for 16 days and about 850,000 non-essential federal employees were furloughed.

The Senate cleared a procedural hurdle to move forward a funding bill to reopen the government. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), who helped author the original CHIP program, argued that "this is simply a matter of priorities".
