Senate Democrats are digging in to oppose a stopgap spending bill that would avert a government shutdown Friday, convinced they’ve got the upper hand in the budget battle and can force a deal to save “Dreamers” from deportation.
The Republican majorities in the House and Senate are advancing the stopgap bill, known as a continuing resolution or CR, that would give lawmakers 28 days to finalize the budget and fix the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals or DACA program that is providing temporary deportation amnesty.
“CRs are a waste of time,” a top aide to Senate Democratic leadership said Wednesday.
Democrats instead want a vote on the bipartisan Gang of Six deal to fix DACA that President Trump rejected last week.
