Lawmakers reach agreement 'in principle' to avert shutdown
By Jordain Carney - 02/11/19 08:32 PM EST

Lawmakers said on Monday night that they had reached an agreement "in principle" to avoid a second partial government shutdown set to begin on Saturday.

“We’ve had a good evening. We’ve reached an agreement in principle between us on the Homeland Security and the other six bills,” Sen. Richard Shelby (R-Ala.) told reporters.

The breakthrough came after Sens. Shelby (R-Ala.) and Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) and Reps. Nita Lowey (D-N.Y.) and Kay Granger (R-Texas)—the top members of the Senate and House Appropriations Committee—met three times on Monday night in a last-ditch effort to get a deal.

Negotiators refused to discuss the particulars of the deal and Lowey said staff were still finalizing the details. Lowey said she hopes for legislation to be released on Wednesday.

“I think everyone will say good work,” Granger said.

If negotiators are able to hold an agreement together, it would mark a dramatic U-turn from earlier Monday when both sides were still divided on two key issues: funding for physical barriers along the U.S.-Mexico border and a snag on Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention beds.

The group of core negotiators refused to discuss how they resolved the ICE fight, after Democrats proposed a cap on the number of ICE detention beds, arguing it would force the Trump administration to focus on “serious criminals,” and that numbers were in line with those from the Obama administration.

"We worked it out in principle. We think it's going to work," Shelby said.

Shelby said the agreement includes funding for physical barriers along the U.S.-Mexico border, but declined to say how much the agreement is for or whether it's more than the $1.6 billion included in the Senate's initial Homeland Security bill.

There were signs that a break-through was imminent earlier Monday evening when Shelby and Leahy, standing side by side as they spoke to reporters, said they were closing in on a deal and could wrap up talks before Tuesday.

"We’re talking about reaching an agreement on all of it," Shelby told reporters.

Congress has until Saturday to get the seven remaining fiscal year 2019 appropriations bills to Trump's desk to fund roughly 25 percent of the federal government, including the Department of Homeland Security.

Lawmakers have 'agreement in principle' on border security talks
Samuel Chamberlain

Congressional negotiators revealed Monday evening that they've reached "an agreement in principle" on border security funding and other issues that could avert a second partial government shutdown this year.

When asked if they had an agreement that President Trump would approve, Sen. Richard Shelby, R-Ala., the chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee, told reporters: "I think so." Rep. Nita Lowey, D-N.Y., declined to give details of the deal, but said more should be known by Wednesday. Lawmakers have until 11:59 p.m. Friday to get the agreement through both houses of Congress and signed by Trump before several Cabinet-level departments shut down and hundreds of thousands of federal workers are furloughed.

Much of the focus will surround how much money will be allotted for Trump's long-promised wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. The White House has asked for $5.7 billion for the barrier, which congressional Democrats have refused to fund. ...

“Here’s the truth. Life begins at conception. Government is too big. Our taxes are too high. And our car insurance is too expensive. President Trump is doing a great job. Facts matter more than feelings. The Second Amendment is self-explanatory. And as a doctor, I can assure you there are only two genders.”

Yeah - if it was anywhere near the $5.7B, they’d be crowing about it.

She's already stated that she'll sign whatever they come up with.  Of course, that way it releases her from any blame if it's not acceptable to the leftists.
"I believe in the United States of America as a Government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign nation of many sovereign states; a perfect union one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution; to obey it laws; to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies." -William Page

The agreement reached tonight would include:

-$1.375b for border barriers (55 new miles of bollard fencing)
-Dems drop call for new cap on ICE beds for detentions in interior
-Overall cap on detention beds drops from 49,057 to 40,520

Per congressional official.

Still looking for other sources.

Republicans were desperate to avoid another bruising shutdown. They tentatively agreed to far less money for President Donald Trump's border wall than the White House's $5.7 billion wish list, settling for a figure of about $1.4 billion, according to a senior congressional aide.

I think the democrats are spooked ... a 52% approval rating and more than 30,000 show up in El Paso for a Trump rally .... 20,000+ watching outside on large screens.

The venue holds 8,000...but the fire department took mercy and let 10,000 in.   :laugh:

Whenever bills pass the House and Senate, the Speaker and President of the Senate (or Pro Tempore) sign them to be delivered to the President for his signature. I learned that in 8th grade civics.

I have to go to bed now.  I can't handle the ups and downs of Trump any longer.  He is on the border talking about all the crimes illegal immigrants are committing and shaming Democrats for not wanting to lock up criminals.  But his negotiators are undermining the very things he is saying making stupid deals.  This is ridiculous.
