The top SenateRepublicanMitch McConnell and opposition DemocratChuck Schumersaid Tuesday they were close to reaching an elusive deal that would set spending caps for 2018 and 2019, in what would be a victory of sorts for Democrats, who have angled for parity in military and non-military funding.
It was just last month when Democrats and Republicans were unable to find common ground and the government shut down for the first time since 2013. House lawmakers are now considering a deal that does not include a legislative fix for the 620,000-800,000 illegal immigrants who came to the U.S.as children.
Less than three weeks after the United States government shut down for three days after Democratic senators would not support a spending Bill that did not include protection for young undocumented immigrants, the threat of another shutdown loomed large this week. Both Democrats and Republicans have said they were making progress on a budget that would increase spending limits for defense and non-defense programs.
But, she added, "the package does nothing to advance bipartisan legislation to protect DREAMers in the House", referring to the young undocumented immigrants.
Senate leaders are working to approve the measure Thursday and send it to the House for passage before the government begins to shut down at midnight.
"I don't know when we would have another opportunity that matches today" to lock Ryan into a commitment, Pelosi said.
Despite simmering rebellion among Republicans and Democrats over a bipartisan budget agreement struck on Wednesday to end the logjam, the Senate had been aiming to vote on the deal later Thursday before sending it to the House.
Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., chairman of the ultra-conservative House Freedom Caucus, said the domestic spending increases were too much for him and other conservatives to stomach. "We'll do a shutdown and it's worth it for our country".
Once Congress funds the government - if it does - McConnell said he would keep his promise to bring up legislation to address immigration and specifically a fix for the Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program that Trump ordered to expire on March 5. It is not clear whether the Senate package will have enough support to pass in the Republican-led House.
"Very pleased to announce alongside @SenateMajLdr that we have reached a two-year budget deal that will benefit our country in so many ways", Schumer wrote on Twitter, referring to McConnell.
