[Photo: AP/Andrew Harnik]The Senate passed the bill to extend the government funding through Feb. 8 with a vote of 81-18, after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Democratic leader Chuck Schumer reached a deal over government spending and immigration.”After several discussions, offers and counteroffers, the Republican leader and I have come to an arrangement. We will vote today to reopen the government to continue negotiating a global agreement,” Schumer said on the Senate floor Monday morning.The House is expected to approve the three-week funding bill later in the day and send it to President Donald Trump for his signature, allowing the government to completely reopen on Tuesday.”As soon as the Senate voted to reopen the government, the President continued conversations on the next steps on responsible immigration reform,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Monday in a statement.”We will work with Democrats and Republicans in the House and Senate committed to fixing our broken immigration system,” she said.The current government funding expired on Friday midnight as the Senate failed to advance a stopgap spending bill, which had passed the House of Representatives and would fund the government through Feb. 16.The shutdown, the first since 2013, cast a shadow over the first anniversary of Trumps presidential inauguration on Saturday and forced him to cancel a planned weekend trip to his Mar-a-Lago resort in the state of Florida.var addthis_config = {“data_track_addressbar”:false};(For the latest China news, Please follow Peoples Daily on Twitter and Facebook)(Web editor: Liang Jun, Bianji)Add your comment/* * * CONFIGURATION VARIABLES: EDIT BEFORE PASTING INTO YOUR WEBPAGE * * */var shortname=window.location.host;var disqus_shortname=;var disqus_identifier=;if (shortname==en.people.cn){disqus_shortname=enpeople;disqus_identifier = 9418385;}/* * * DONT EDIT BELOW THIS LINE * * */(function() {var dsq = document.createElement(script); dsq.type = text/javascript; dsq.async = true;dsq.src = // + disqus_shortname + .disqus.com/embed.js;(document.getElementsByTagName(head)[0] || document.getElementsByTagName(body)[0]).appendChild(dsq);})();Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus.Most Read1Op-Ed: American universities give Chinese people a lesson i…2Russia embraces China’s ways of payment3When will Marriott stop labelling Tibet as a nation on all …4China’s regional jets receive first order from Africa5Chinese enterprise builds worlds largest single-unit solar…Hot NewsCommand of Armed Police Force to be unified
