House passes stopgap spending bill, Senate fate uncertain

House passes stopgap spending bill, Senate fate uncertain”

But Trump hit back on Twitter Thursday.

The measure passed by a 230-197 vote, with a handful of Republicans joining Democrats in voting against the measure.

Now, as House speaker himself, Ryan is struggling to head off a shutdown on his watch. "I am sure where he stands". So the president tweeted about policy.

House passage came only after conservatives secured a promise from House Speaker Paul Ryan that he would soon advance some type of legislation to bolster us military readiness, said Republican Representative Mark Meadows. They say the four-week duration of the House continuing resolution is too long and would take the pressure off of immigration negotiations.

Essential services, such as Social Security, air traffic control and the Transportation Security Administration, will continue to be funded even if some employees of those agencies are not. "The progressive movement who are going to be the boots on the ground for the Democrats to regain power" in November's midterm elections, she added, "are going to hold them accountable if they don't come through".

The bill now goes to the Senate, where it needs 60 votes to avoid a filibuster.

The last-minute confusion over CHIP further complicates spending negotiations that were stalled when Trump rejected a bipartisan Senate immigration plan meant to pave the way for a long-term spending agreement.

The 2018 fiscal year began last October 1. The deal to end the shutdown coincided with a deadline to raise the USA debt ceiling, the country's borrowing limit. Democrats are resisting a spending deal agreement until a bipartisan immigration deal is clinched.

Democrats have insisted a long-term spending bill must include a measure covering the "Dreamers", who were protected from deportation under former President Barack Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

It was during that meeting that Trump questioned why the US would want more immigrants from "shithole countries" in Africa. "Eventually, we need to make progress on the biggest issues before us". "If there is no Wall, there is no Deal!", Trump tweeted.

A bipartisan group of senators hoped their proposal to give the almost 800,000 young immigrants a path to citizenship, boost border security measures, eliminate the visa lottery and make other changes to the immigration system would gain traction this week. In the Senate, a senior Democratic aide tells NBC News that they have the votes to block it. Mike Rounds have indicated they'll vote against the stopgap measure.

As he's done since taking office a year ago, Trump was dominating and confusing the jousting, at times to the detriment of his own party. All three voted in favor of the previous stop-gap measure in late December.

Instead of passing a month-long patch to government spending, Schumer proposed a "very short-term" bill to keep the government running that he said could spark a deal over the next few days on immigration and overall spending levels through September 30, the end of this fiscal year.

Following the passage of the bill, Ryan applauded the move and stressed the need for the Senate to pass the bill. After being temporarily lifted for 2016 and 2017, it was stated for restoration this year. Cory Booker, California Sen.

Camille Mackler is director of legal initiatives at the New York Immigration Coalition, an advocacy group. Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders has advocated for this, too. Several Democrats, including Tim Kaine, Mark Warner and Patrick Leahy, have said they will vote against the resolution.

Todd Schulte of FWD.US, which supports increased immigration, also noted that people previously safe under DACA already are losing protections every day.

Newly sworn in Democrat Doug Jones of Alabama criticized the notion of another CR and argued stopgap funding bills are not a healthy way to run a government.

"A government shutdown will be devastating to our military... something the Dems care very little about!" We'll see what happens.
