Schumer: We’re Reopening Government With Commitment to Vote on DACA If Deal Isn’t Reached by February 8th

Chuck Schumer
During a speech on the Senate floor on Monday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) announced a deal has been reached Democrats will vote to reopen the government with a commitment that if an agreement has not been reached by February 8th, there will be immediate consideration of DACA legislation. Schumer said, “We will vote today to reopen the government, to continue negotiating a global agreement, with the commitment that, if an agreement isn’t reached by February the 8th, the Senate will immediately proceed to consideration of legislation dealing with DACA. The process will be neutral and fair to all sides. We expect that a bipartisan bill on DACA will receive fair consideration and an up or down vote on the floor.” Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett
