Trump Says 'Dreamers' Program Is 'Probably Dead'

Senate Democrats broadly oppose the short-term spending bill, called a continuing resolution, because it does not include protections for immigrants brought to the USA illegally as children and also fails to deal with a broad array of other domestic spending priorities.

"I feel that it makes no sense for Democrats to try and bring us to a shutdown, to try and cut off CHIP funding for the states that are running out of money, like Minnesota and Washington and Kentucky and other states", Ryan said.

"There is very, very strong support not to go along with their deal", said Schumer.

"Congress should remain in session with no recess until we work out a long-term bipartisan budget deal that addresses all issues", Warner and Kaine said in a joint statement.

"This has turned into an s-show", said Sen. He says, "if there is one, it will fall on the Republicans' backs, plain and simple".

In order to convince Democrats to vote for their budget bill, Republicans are offering a six-year extension of the Children's Health Insurance Program (Chip), which benefits lower-income families.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said Thursday morning that he anticipates the House will pass the funding bill, but its fate in the Senate is uncertain. Vote counters planned to gauge GOP support later Wednesday. As reprehensible as Trump's remarks are, the situation of some 800,000 people known as Dreamers is of such overriding importance that Democrats and Republicans alike must find a way to move past those comments and find a solution. I know we are all frustrated by the pace of negotiations on spending, but joining Democrats to shut down the government plays right into the Democrats hand. Richard J. Durbin, D-Illinois, the minority whip, publicly confirmed what the president said during a closed-door negotiation, declaring that Trump "said things that were hate-filled, vile and racist", and adding, "I can not believe that in the history of the White House, in that Oval Office, any president has ever spoken the words that I personally heard our president speak yesterday". During the same meeting, Mr. Trump rejected a bipartisan deal on DACA that, in addition to offering a path to citizenship for Dreamers, also set aside funding for increased border security and allowed for the redistribution of diversity lottery visas.

Separately, members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus and other Democrats met privately in the Capitol with White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, and some emerged citing little progress.

Another group of high-level lawmakers has also started talks aimed at brokering an immigration deal, adding an additional level of uncertainty. "Anyone who says they want to avoid a shutdown shold be asking for a vote on that compromise legislation".

It also said it had blocked many hundreds more potential terrorists who tried to enter the country both legally and illegally.

It seems certain that no immigration accord will be reached this week, in time to affect the outcome on the vote on the separate bill preventing a federal shutdown.

In a press release Thursday afternoon, the two lawmakers announced a bill with 40 bipartisan co-sponsors that would guarantee no federal worker loses pay as a result of a possible government shutdown. McCain has been at home in Arizona dealing with health issues, and it's not clear if he could be back by Friday. The overall measure would fund the government through February 16 and was well received by most GOP lawmakers when Ryan proposed it Tuesday.

Many Democrats have said that without an immigration deal in sight, they'll vote against a Republican bill preventing a weekend government shutdown.

California Democratic Representative Jackie Speier, however, told the outlet she would not vote in favor of the bill.

Charlie Dent, a moderate Republican from Pennsylvania who is chairman of an appropriations subcommittee, said some of his GOP colleagues need to "grow up" and recognize that a 60-vote threshold for passage of most legislation in the Senate forces compromise from a majority party that holds just 51 seats. Seven of those Democrats face re-election in November in states Trump won - including West Virginia, North Dakota and Montana, which have small numbers of minority voters.
