Senator Schumer says many Dems oppose spending bill

But White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said later that day that a deal had not yet been reached.

But immigration is not a subject the Congress handles easily - see the 2013 comprehensive immigration reform package for proof - and Democratic leaders have suggested that the only way something will make it to Trump's desk is if it is attached to a must-pass bill, like a spending bill.

Trump complicated the talks by saying a six-year extension of funding for the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP), a Democratic priority, should not be included.

By a vote of 230-197, the House passed a bill to fund the government through 16 February. "Congress needs to do its job and provide full funding of our troops and military with a two-year budget caps deal", Shah said.

Both parties profess to hate this temporary can-kicking style of government funding, but with Republicans insisting on cuts to domestic spending paired with hikes for military spending, and Democrats demanding both sides of the equation be equally raised, a long-term budget deal has proved elusive.

Party activists have been imploring Democrats for months to stop supporting government funding bills that don't replace DACA, which provided protection from deportation and work permits for hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children until Trump announced he was ending it.

House Homeland Security chairman, Republican Congressman Michael McCaul (R-10), one of the authors of a subsequent bill that would allow those protected under DACA to apply for legal status for three years at a time, claims conservatives on Capitol Hill will suffer if no solution is found.

"The president wants to have his cake and eat it too", said Adriana Cerrillo, a community activist.

"And we will go after them aggressively", said a senior Republican aide working on party strategy.

On top of that, President Trump injected fresh confusion into tense negotiations to avert an impending shutdown with a Thursday morning tweet that indicated he opposed the measure the White House had previously signaled support for. Seven of those Democrats face re-election in November in Trump-won states, while others - like Virginia Democratic Sens.

In rushing, Jay Ajayi ran for 54 yards in 15 carries while Nelson Agholor added 20 yards in two rushes. Philly's defense then quickly forced the Falcons to go three and out and gave Foles the ball back.

"I think cool heads hopefully will prevail on this".

Keep in mind on this: Should House Republicans pass their short-term spending bill, it's a very, very tough vote for Senate Democrats. Democrats for their part are quick to point out the GOP controls the White House and both chambers of Congress. He had spoken to the president an hour and half before, he said, and Trump was on board.

At the same time on the Senate floor, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was criticizing Democrats for trying to force Republicans to accept provisions dealing with immigration and the DACA program.

"I want a comprehensive deal", Carper told reporters.

Federal financing for the program that serves almost 9 million children expired in October and several states are close to exhausting their money, and Congress has passed several short-term patches to keep their programs afloat.

Other Republicans have backed Durbin, for example, Sen. Dick Durbin and Rep. Stenny Hoyer. Susan Collins (R-Maine), Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.), Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) and Mike Rounds (R-S.D.).

Republican leaders are full speed ahead on a short-term funding bill - now they just need the votes for it.

Leadership also had to convince defense hawks to back another short-term spending bill after they've said repeatedly that they have deep concerns about how that could affect the military.

Early on Thursday, Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer said the House bill to fund the government was "very likely to be unacceptable to the Senate".
