Trump Signs Spending Bill to End Brief Government Shutdown

Rand Paul

Though brief - the government had reopened before most people had arrived to work on Friday, hours after the shutdown began - the timing of the shutdown was risky, coming soon after another massive sell-off on United States markets reflecting investor nerves about the USA economy.

President Trump in September said he would end an Obama-era program that granted legal status and work permits to the DREAMers, who could be subject to deportation as early as March 5.

"I urge Speaker Ryan to the Floor a one-day funding bill to keep the government open", Hoyer said in a statement. In his attempt to sway Paul to relent, Sen. "And I took his words at face value that he wants to solve the DACA problem and that we will address it once this bill was behind us". Getting the legislation out of the House before the midnight shutdown deadline was more iffy, with Democrats and members of the House Freedom Caucus suggesting they might oppose it.

He said he hoped his stand would teach conservatives "to not accept just anything because it comes from a GOP Congress".

In addition to increase military spending, the deal renews several health care programs and tax provisions, suspends the debt limit for a year and allocates additional funding for national disaster relief.

Recent reports suggest that as many as 70 Republicans in the chamber could vote against the bill.

"Democrats have fought hard but, in the end, many opted to say yes to other priorities and leave Dreamers behind", said Frank Sharry, executive director of the pro-immigration America's Voice. Paul refused stop protesting the measure, citing concerns over its increase to the deficit and calling on leadership to allow for a vote on his amendment to reinstate budget caps.

The White House kept its distance from the quarreling on Capitol Hill. The Democrats also want to make the immigrants eligible for citizenship or permanent residence. Trump has proposed giving 1.8 million young undocumented immigrants a pathway to citizenship in exchange for $25 billion for his long-promised border wall and a host of other strict immigration reforms. Susan Collins was optimistic about the preparedness of the bipartisan group she was been leading for the all-Senate debate. The most promising outcome may be a narrow bill extending DACA protections for a year or so and providing some border security money for Trump.

"Republican majorities in the House and Senate have turned the (budget) process into an embarrassing spectacle, running from one crisis directly into the next", said Democratic Representative Nita Lowey prior to the House vote.

Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul put the brakes on Senate leaders' plan to drive the agreement quickly through the Senate, repeatedly blocking a Thursday vote and provoking colleagues' frustration. But Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill., said anyone supporting the spending measure was "colluding with this president and this administration to deport Dreamers".

The House did pass a continuing resolution on Tuesday, funding the government through March 23.

What made coming to an agreement easier was the fact that the deal reached by Congress fulfills the wishes of key factions in both parties.

He says senators will likely pass the bill, adding, "They'll be exhausted and ornery, but it's their own fault".

The agreement raises federal budget caps for two years with the increase divided nearly equally between defense and domestic spending.

The Senate has approved a massive budget deal in the early hours of Friday, February 9 to avoid a long-term government shutdown.

Ryan said on Thursday he would bring an immigration bill to the floor that the president would sign.
