Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) announced on the Senate floor that after a weekend of conversations with his GOP counterpart, "offers and counter-offers, the Republican leader and I have come to an arrangement". The White House and GOP leaders said they would not negotiate with Democrats on immigration until the government is reopened.
Schumer's agreement to allow passage of the budget in return for McConnell's promise to discuss a DACA extension in the near future was described as a sign of weakness by outraged liberals on Twitter, with Schumer himself being depicted by one activist as the "worst negotiator in Washington". Democrats want to give those immigrants who have always been here a path to citizenship; Some Republicans support some type of protections but want to curb legal and illegal immigration as part of any deal, while other GOP lawmakers disparage any legal status as "amnesty".
"I respect the passion that many of my friends in this chamber, Democrat and Republican alike bring to the major issue before the Senate, all of these issues", McConnell said.
" "Trust but verify" is my motto", said Sen.
Democrats have withheld support for a temporary funding bill to keep the government open over the DACA issue. Forty-four Democrats and four Republicans voted against that bill, with many saying they wouldn't support anything that didn't help the 700,000 undocumented young people PresidentDonald Trump put at risk of losing deportation protections when he ended DACA.
One new poll found that Americans would blame Trump and the Republicans for a shutdown by a 20-point margin, but another poll released Friday was less encouraging for Democrats.
"It's nearly as if you were rooting for a shutdown", Schumer said in comments on the Senate floor aimed directly at Trump.
Chuck Schumer, the Senate's top Democrat, indicated earlier Sunday that he would continue to lead a filibuster of the stopgap spending measure, while congressional Republicans appeared content to let the pressure build on the second day of the government shutdown.
Dan Holler, vice president of communications and government relations at the conservative advocacy group Heritage Action for America, warns that Republicans need to be careful of what kind of immigration deal they make. Mike Lee (Utah) and Rand Paul (Ky.) voted against the measure. "A government shutdown is not a good way to get an outcome legislatively".
The votes came several hours after the workday for hundreds of thousands of furloughed federal employees was supposed to have begun, and it comes three days after the government officially shut down at midnight Friday.
McConnell reiterated the same on the Senate floor, adding the shutdown was distracting senators from focusing on passing legislation. Mitch McConnell told senators that the weeks ahead would "require the best from all of us", as they move on to negotiations over DACA and immigration, as well as military spending, disaster relief and health care.
Schumer blamed the shutdown on the lack of a clear directive for Republicans from Trump, who he said "turned away from two bipartisan compromises" that could have averted the shutdown. The other side won't engage until the government is open.
Democratic lawmakers counter that the president hurt negotiations by initially expressing support for a compromise and then abruptly turning it away. "He was much more specific this morning than he was last night, and frankly this is an important opportunity for him to demonstrate that he will carry through".
One of those senators, Ohio's Sherrod Brown, said Democrats "got a good deal".
But this is the first time that a government shutdown has happened in the U.S. when both houses of Congress are controlled by the party, whose member occupies the White House.
Other possible White House contenders who voted against the bill included Sens.
