It's Showdown time.

quote [ Why Democrats probably won’t shut down the government again
Democrats are trying to change the terrain of the immigration debate. ]

The Senate should pass a funding bill today, but it will have nothing in it about Dreamers. It is a good bill...more than the Dems could have suspected, but it leaves the Dreamers swinging in the breeze.

Nancy Pelosi makes a stand for DACA recipients but in the end didn't get what she was asking from Ryan. Ryan said the would vote on a DACA bill but did not promise to vote on the one coming out of the Senate or did he give her the right of approval McConnell gave to Schumer.

LSS; should this bill pass?...defiantly Yes..will any of this help Dreamers... No The only thing possible for them is a last minute extension.'

Flake floats Dreamers extension even that is not certin without boarder/wall money.

Speaking of walls.
In a sign of increasing partisan hostilities, Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee plan to construct a wall – a physical partition – separating Republican and Democratic staff members in the committee’s secure spaces, according to multiple committee sources. It’s expected to happen this spring.

For now, some Republican committee members deny knowing anything about it, while strongly suggesting the division is the brainchild of the committee’s chairman, Devin Nunes, R-California.

“I’m not part of that decision,” said Rep. Mike Conaway, R-Texas. “You’ve got to talk to Devin. I don’t know what they’re trying to do one way or the other.”

On the Monday morning QB thing - the Senate passed the budget bill, the House passed the Senate's bill, the Dreamers got screwed, and the Tea Party movement vanished like a fart in the wind.
