Gov’t Shutdown Ends as Democrats Capitulate on DACA

On Capitol Hill, the Senate has voted to end the government shutdown, after Democratic lawmakers capitulated on the demand that any spending deal include a resolution on DACA—that’s the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. Instead, a slew of centrist Democrats abandoned their promise to the nearly 800,000 young undocumented immigrants whose protections President Trump ended last fall, and joined Republicans in voting to pass a short-term spending deal to fund the government through February 8. On Monday, DACA recipients slammed the move.
