Shutdown continues into workweek, as Senate talks drag on

Lawmakers are set to return to Capitol Hill on Monday in hopes of hashing out a deal

President Trump struck an optimistic tone on Twitter after he signed a bill to reopen the government late Monday night after a 69-hour federal government shutdown that led to Senate Democrats backing off their opposition.

But by relenting, the Democrats prompted a backlash from immigration activists and liberal base supporters who wanted them to fight longer and harder for legislation to protect from deportation the 700,000 or so younger immigrants who were brought to the country as children and now are here illegally.

Senate Democrats, who had sought firmer guarantees from McConnell on immigration, were initially reluctant to accept his terms. It is expected to pass easily, and House approval is expected later. The broad framework is that, in exchange for a permanent fix for DACA, the president wants funding for the border wall he touted frequently during the campaign, along with an end to what he calls chain migration - or legal immigrants bringing other family members to the USA - and an end to the visa lottery system.

"I am pleased that Democrats in Congress have come to their senses and are now willing to fund our great military, border patrol, first responders, and insurance for vulnerable children", he said in a statement.

The House and the Senate voted Monday to end the government shutdown, extending funding for three weeks, following a deal reached between Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

After the shutdown began, Trump suppressed his instincts and did not call Schumer, advisers said, and was buoyed by aides doing a full television blitz - a public strategy partially prepared by West Wing officials who were anxious that Trump would be inclined to strike a deal quickly if the media coverage turned poor.

"You now have a commitment for a path forward for the so-called 'Dreamers.; That's critical. It's evident that this government shutdown is doing nothing, absolutely nothing, to generate bipartisan progress on the issues the American people care about". For Democrats, and even some Republicans, a status short of citizenship could be a nonstarter.

Many Democrats are furious with members of their party for agreeing to a deal with Republican senators to reopen the government. House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., said Sunday on CBS's Face the Nation that he would support a spending bill like the one being discussed in the Senate.

Official! United unveil Sanchez in monster $287m deal
But McClaren believes United have struck a major blow by landing Sanchez, who has scored 80 goals in 166 appearances at Arsenal . While Henrikh Mkhitaryan , who has moved the other way, is a thoughtful, sometimes inspired player, Sanchez is a firecracker.

Democratic Senator Heidi Heitkamp welcomed the deal. That group included immigration hard-liners such as Sens.

Some members of the public opposed to Mr Trump expressed outrage at the partisan message on the public service. Susan Collins of ME and Jeff Flake of Arizona. But he was emphatic in excluding President Trump from the deal, saying the Trump shutdown was about to end, and that he had been disengaged and on the sidelines during the weekend's negotiations.

Markets have absorbed the shutdown drama over the last week, and on Monday morning world stocks and US bond markets largely shrugged off the standoff even as the dollar continued its pullback. Joe Manchin of West Virginia and the newly-elected Doug Jones of Alabama.

"Anything could happen. It's not a done deal for the Democrats, they have merely bought themselves some more time".

Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., said Democrats got enough to satisfy them moving forward.

Further direct talks with Trump may have to wait. "That's his job as president of the United States".

Many Democrats anxious the Republican talking point that Democrats were siding with "illegal immigrants" over the military and government would resonate with voters as the stalemate extended into the workweek.
