One option on the table was a temporary funding extension to allow senators to come up with a more long-term plan that would include a measure for Dreamers.
Republicans in Congress have argued that Democrats in the Senate are holding up the process by insisting on tying an extension of the DACA program to the legislation needed to fund the government's operations.
"He indicated that they want to stop kicking the can down the road and they want a real funding bill for the federal government", Connolly said of Durbin. And he is, of course, erratic, unhelpful and not following along, and therefore has contributed more than any other player to the chaos. "We are strongest when we stick together - that will produce the best spending deal and the best DACA deal - one that has a chance of being enacted into law".
What's the main sticking point?
Democrats are refusing to support this fourth stopgap measure mostly to force a resolution for DREAMers, or young immigrants brought to the USA illegally when they were children. Leaders of both parties in the House and the Senate continue to meet to discuss a path forward on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program, but a deal by Friday seems unlikely.
However, Democratic House leader Nancy Pelosi said on Thursday: "This is like giving you a bowl of doggy doo, put a cherry on top, and call it a chocolate sundae". It's not clear whether that progress means a freeze on the shutdown clock, at least in a small increment; this might entail a one- or two-day continuing resolution.
Trump asked Schumer to the White House for a meeting that lasted more than an hour. "If the president of the United States, whether by design or incompetence is going to shut down the government, that is a big problem", Van Hollen said.
Another conservative lawmaker vented his frustration with Mr Trump.
Republicans Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Rand Paul of Kentucky and Arizona's Jeff Flake have all stated their opposition to the bill.
A test vote on a filibuster by Senate Democrats appeared likely before the shutdown deadline.
As the federal government appeared headed for a partial closing at midnight Friday, Michigan's Republican and Democratic lawmakers debated who would be to blame for a shutdown. Eighty percent overall call the Children's Health Insurance Program an extremely or very important priority for Congress, including 91% of Democrats and 70% of Republicans.
McConnell's prime targets in his goal to increase his majority are the 10 Democrats from states that voted for President Donald Trump in 2016.
Neither the President nor Congress are particularly popular, according to the poll, with Trump's approval rating at a net-negative 40% approve to 55% disapprove, and Congress meriting just 18% approval, with 76% disapproving.
"I'm handicapping [a shutdown] now at some place between 50 and 60 percent", Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaneytold reporters Friday morning at the White House.
Neither party wants to be held responsible for a federal shutdown with United States midterms elections looming in November.
He said Trump was still "actively working" to try to prevent this shutdown, but he also tried to pin the blame on Democrats and even several times tried to blame President Barack Obama for the 2013 closure.
Trump weighed in Thursday, again demanding money for a wall along the southern border with Mexico.
That includes national security, air traffic control, inpatient medical services, emergency outpatient medicine, disaster assistance, prisons, taxation, electricity production and the military.
The Trump administration is drawing up plans to keep national parks and monuments open despite a possible shutdown as a way to blunt public anger, and while the military would not cease to operate, troops would not be paid unless Congress specifically authorizes it.
But White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said later that day that a deal had not yet been reached . Democrats for their part are quick to point out the GOP controls the White House and both chambers of Congress.
