House Republicans are planning to offer Democrats an extension on a popular children's health program if they are willing to delay a decision on the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
Amid turmoil over Washington imminently running out of funding, Rep. Ken Buck (R-Colo.) said Tuesday he is "open" to voting for a continued resolution by week's end and expects a deal will be reached to avert a government shutdown. McPherson says Democrats facing reelection fights in states where Trump won the presidential vote in 2016 are unlikely to support a government shutdown over DACA.
Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., laid the groundwork Wednesday for attacks on Democrats who vote against the funding plan, arguing that failing to pass the bill would hurt the military as well as children covered by a federal health insurance program the bill will extend.
White House Chief of Staff John Kelly met with the group Wednesday morning. "So there's very, very strong support not to go along with their deal".
"I think everyone has the empathy and compassion to want to help these young people who are stranded and we're trying to find that, but shutting down the government isn't going to help them".
An added complication is that House GOP defense hawks are not yet sold on the idea of another stopgap.
Representative Carlos Curbelo, a Florida Republican who faces a competitive re-election this fall in a district that is heavily Latino, said he won't vote to extend government spending authority if there isn't an indication that an immigration deal is near.
In the bill to be passed this week to avoid a shutdown, Republicans would also suspend a tax imposed by the Affordable Care Act on medical devices, as well as a tax on providers of health insurance.
Those Democrats who are still working for a compromise are the ones deserving of the public's support here, for they could sit back, let the GOP allow the government to shut down, and then reap the political windfall that would come to Democrats as a result.
Democrats have tied the issues together by threatening to vote against any spending bill that doesn't include a DACA fix. Democrats are demanding that spending legislation include a provision permanently shielding about 690,000 undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S.as children from deportation. And there was a feeling last week that leaders were close to an agreement on DACA, which could pave the way to agreeing on other elements of a budget deal.
Graham, meanwhile, announced in his statement that his bipartisan deal, though already rejected by Trump, had picked up support from four more Republican senators, bringing the total to seven. Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin of IL and Republican Sen.
What we can not support is a DACA deal that deals with the dreamers alone, without paying for the wall and making other efforts to enforce and strengthen immigration laws. And they're daring Democrats to vote no.
The deadline is Friday for a government funding bill.
The total spending cap increase could amount to some $250 billion over two years, not counting exempt Overseas Contingency Operations funds or emergency assistance to hurricane and wildfire-stricken states and territories. Republican leaders have insisted that the immigration debate be handled entirely outside the spending package, and that moretime may be needed to resolve both matters.
If a temporary "continuing resolution" to keep the government operating results, it would be the fourth such measure since the 2018 federal fiscal year began on October 1, a sign of Washington's serious struggles to pass spending legislation.
MA and other states believed that Obama's wink and a nod with federal law enforcement would be honored by future presidents. Last year, the West Virginia Legislature passed a bill that will make medical marijuana legal to receive on July 1, 2019.
