On Friday, the U.S. Senate failed to pass a continuing resolution funding the federal government moving forward.
While both parties agree that the government should continue to be funded, the two parties are divided on the issue of immigration. Democrats want the children brought by their parents who crossed the border illegally given legal status and a pathway to American citizenship.
When Congress did not pass the DREAM Act in 2012, President Barack Obama gave the children of immigrants who crossed the border illegally deferred action on immigration enforcement, or DACA, via an executive order. President Donald Trump is letting that program expire in March.
