BREAKING NEWS: House Republicans are reportedly preparing a stopgap bill to fund the US government through February 16. The bill would NOT include protections for illegal immigrant “dreamers,” so they would be allowed to stay in the United States.
In response, illegal immigrants and dreamer advocates are set to stage massive protests and perhaps even riots.
Via Yahoo News:
Partisan finger-pointing over immigration policy on Tuesday left Congress and the White House stumbling closer to a possible federal government shutdown by the end of the week.
Republicans who control Congress pushed another stopgap funding bill and get it to President Donald Trump’s desk before a midnight Friday deadline when existing money for federal agencies expires. The bill is expected to pass.
The bill does not include protections for the young people described as “Dreamers,” Republican Representative Mike Simpson told reporters after his party’s closed-door meeting.

Many Democrats in Congress have insisted that immigration be a component of the temporary spending bill.
But Democrats, under the plan being developed in the House, would win an unrelated high-priority item: a six-year reauthorization of the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), according to lawmakers. It was unclear whether the House Republican leadership would get enough votes to pass the measure in that chamber.

A long term solution is still not agreed upon. Once the temporary funding bill expires, Congress will be in the same place it is now: unable to agree on spending caps and a DACA deal.
Republicans have argued that DACA should be dealt with separately from the spending bill; Democrats, on the other hand, insist it must be included.

A government shutdown is seeming more likely than ever.
