BREAKING: Senate Announces Deal To Reopen Government – What About DACA?


The government shutdown due to the partisan divide over DACA protections has rocked the political news world for three full days, with each side pointing fingers and assigning blame. With a president who cannot stick to an agreement and communicate what it is he can agree to without being immediately convinced to go back on his word by his racist hard right cronies like Stephen Miller and Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AZ), reaching a deal seemed impossible.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, who had reached an agreement with Trump weeks ago only to have it snatched back once the president was convinced to do so by his foreign policy adviser, announced an agreement to fund the government and continue working on immigration policy and extending protections to Dreamers under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program before the March deadline.

A vote to reopen the government will be held now that the two parties have agreed to a temporary resolution.
