Midnight shutdown creeps closer as Congress debates budget

Used to scuffles Rand Paul takes on Senate risks shutdown

U.S. President Donald Trump hosts a law enforcement round table on MS-13 at the White House on February 6, 2018 in Washington, DC. Activists are also angry over a comment from the president's Chief of Staff John Kelly disparaging some immigrants who didn't sign up for DACA. Depends on who is speaking.

Kelly noted, however, that the March 5 expiration date is not likely to have an immediate impact on most DACA recipients.

As lawmakers in Washington, D.C., this week have debated over yet another stop-gap funding measure to keep the government running (or not), once again the issue of Dreamers - children brought illegally to this country whose quest for USA citizenship has drawn harsh political divisions - have been bantered about as Republicans and the president openly mislead the public about US immigration laws. Lawyers are trying to narrow Mueller's line of questioning in order to limit the legal traps and relying on ground rules for getting evidence from the White House: one, a serious crime; two, proof that there's no other way to get answers; and three, no fishing expeditions.

And White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders quickly clarified that the president wasn't endorsing the outcome, exactly. That's when a programme implemented by former president Barack Obama which allowed immigrants brought to the country illegally as children to remain in the country is set to expire.

Waldman acknowledged that Trump said he is eager to sign an immigration deal, and he acknowledged that Democrats can't force a better deal by closing down the government. He claimed no progress on immigration talks, even as bipartisan action was underway in both chambers.

U.S. President Donald Trump said Tuesday he would welcome another federal government shutdown if Congress can not agree on stiffer immigration restrictions.

China Has Mixed Feelings About Elon Musk's Falcon Heavy Success
As its payload, the test rocket carried Elon Musk's Tesla Roadster and a dummy named "Starman" wearing one of SpaceX's spacesuits. It's also spending heavily on future vehicles, including a semi that's supposed to go into production next year.

The president told members of Congress and law enforcement officials that he's open to allowing the federal government to enter another funding lapse on Friday if Democrats on Capitol Hill "don't want safety" or to "take care of" the USA military, according to White House pool reports.

"We are not advocating for a shutdown", she added.

When asked to clarify his remarks at the end of the roundtable, Trump told reporters again that he would shut down the government over immigration. "God only knows how they afford it, by bus, train, who knows how they get there".

The bipartisan breakthrough came as the Republican-controlled House of Representatives debated and then passed a controversial six-week stopgap spending measure. Barbara Comstock of Virginia, offered a different stance on that than Trump - just days after he declared the GOP as unified as either party has been "for many, many years".

"You can call them spineless cowards if you want", Waldman wrote, assuming many in his audience had that in mind.
