Trump muscles in on GOP strategy to stop shutdown

Trump muscles in on GOP strategy to stop shutdown

House Republicans included funding for the popular low-priced health program for children to put more pressure on Democrats to back the bill ahead of a shutdown deadline Friday.

In another tweet on Tuesday, Trump blamed Democrats for the government shutdown threat.

"The ruling could deflate the pressure on Congress to act in the next week and in our view there remains just as much urgency as ever for a lasting fix", said Michael Tan from the American Civil Liberties Union. And, ABC reports, the likelihood that Congress will instead pass another short-term stopgap spending bill has increased.

Undocumented immigrants can resume applications for protection under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program after a federal judge last week blocked the Trump administration's plan to let DACA expire, immigration officials said.

"I do not believe DACA is dead", Nielsen said.

"There is no reason my colleagues should hold government funding hostage over the issue of illegal immigration", McConnell said. She also said it would be "completely irresponsible" for Democrats to demand that a deal be tied to keeping the government funded.

Other Republicans have backed Durbin, for example, Sen.

"We're working on it".

Outside of the House fight, the plan will also need some support from Senate Democrats in order to avoid a filibuster in that body.

"The president certainly doesn't want a shutdown". "The Democrats are negotiating in good faith".

As Republican President Donald Trump and Democratic Senator Dick Durbin traded accusations over a sudden halt in talks toward a deal to save so-called Dreamer immigrants - those brought into the country illegally as children - from deportation, the risks of a shutdown were seen as higher, if not overwhelming. The president has also denied using that expression, instead saying he used "strong" language.

Both Democrats and Republicans, as well as Trump, are trying to make deals. "I stand behind every word that I said". "Durbin blew DACA and is hurting our Military", he tweeted as he prepared to leave Florida.

Flake said he was in a meeting immediately following the one in which the president made the alleged comments, with some of the same participants. Trump briefly agreed to that in a bipartisan meeting last week until Republicans explained his bargaining position. He said he spoke with Trump on Wednesday night.

"The important thing is to save 800,000 kids", he said.

The reported deal from the bipartisan group was a solid start, with genuine compromise from both sides. "That I can tell you".

"We all want to get to a solution here". Nationally, the group says, ending the program would siphon $460 billion from the US economy over the next decade.
