After three days of government shutdown, Senators and Representatives came to a temporary agreement to fund the government until February 8 to give them more time to come to a final funding decision. The hot-topic hold up was immigration. The Democratic minority in the Senate wanted to hold out for negotiations to incorporate an extension of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) immigration policy, which ultimately led to the shut down. With the new deadline looming, Senators have come together to work out a bipartisan solution that will fund the government through 2018. Senator Susan Collins (R-Maine) has spearheaded the efforts to create a "common-sense coalition" that helped end the shutdown, and is now working to find a solution to the DACA issue. President Donald Trump has suggested deportation protection and a citizenship pathway for as many as 1.8 million DACA recipients who came to America as children and are known as Dreamers. In return, he is asking for $25 million to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. So far, no deal has been reached that will extend the temporary funding.
