Night falls on the U.S. Capitol on Day 2 of the federal shutdown as lawmakers negotiate behind closed doors in Washington Sunday

House passes measure to fund government and end shutdown

Members of the minority party have threatened to vote against the bill if they can not also pass a plan this week to protect hundreds of thousands of young immigrants. The stakes are too high to put politics before people: President Trump stripped protections for Dreamers and Congressional Republicans have not prioritized Children's Health insurance. We've said that many times before. In a statement released on Wednesday, the Office of Management and Budget initially expressed White House backing for the GOP proposal. They all agree that they should do this or that, but somehow it doesn't get done.

After the shutdown began at midnight, Nebraska's senators offered their thoughts on it.

Stefanik said she would continue to urge Schumer and Gillibrand to end the shutdown and reopen the government. Damage could build quickly if the closure is prolonged. It's relatively small and lawmakers from both parties laud it as a model of evidence-based policymaking. "We've reached a point where North and South Korea have a better relationship than Republicans and Democrats do", he said. "They could have easily made a deal but chose to play Shutdown politics instead". The Republicans plan to bring the legislation up to a vote Thursday.

Others were more open. Critical government functions continued, with uniformed service members, health inspectors and law enforcement officers set to work without pay.

The most liberal members of Schumer's Democratic caucus, including rumored 2020 presidential contenders Kirsten Gillibrand, Cory Booker and Elizabeth Warren, voted against advancing the measure.

Democrats are facing pressure from immigration activists and party leaders to oppose the stopgap funding bill, because no deal on the fate of 700,000 unauthorized immigrants who came to the United States as children has been made yet. There is no actual logic in portraying votes like those of the Democrats who voted Friday to keep the government open as a betrayal of the Dreamers, or as a trade-off of one group or the other-even if some Democrats themselves saw it that way. The exception, available in limited situations, is the reconciliation procedure GOP leaders used on the tax and Obamacare repeal bills; otherwise, Senate passage requires 60 votes, and Republicans only have 51.

Trump had been an unreliable negotiator in the weeks leading up to the showdown. That goal was agreed to in a bicameral, bipartisan meeting at the White House. Democrats in both chambers have signaled their opposition to a measure that does not include some extension or action on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. His disparaging remarks about African and Haitian immigrants last week helped derail further negotiations. "They want to see the CHIP program funded", Republican National Committee chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel said on CNN a few minutes before Trump's tweet.
