Trump just caved. Democrats have shown that they can stand up to him. Trump held the country hostage for over a month and he failed to get what he demanded. Here's what's in the deal: 1/
A clean CR until Feb 15. This is big. It means the govt will reopen. It means that 800,000 federal employees will finally get paid, with backpay for furloughed workers. It means no money for Trump's wall or any of the extreme demands he's made in order to open up the govt. 2/
It also sets in motion a conference committee that will continue negotiating on DHS funding, including Trump's wall. And because the CR lasts only until Feb. 15, if they don't come to an agreement, we'll be back in another #trumpshutdown. 3/
To be clear, Democrats have not conceded another dime for Trump's wall, for detention beds, or for more border agents. This deal only gets us out of the shutdown, and the fight continues. 4/
The risk is that in three weeks, Republicans and Trump continue to demand money for a hateful wall that most people don't want and that will cause harm to families and communities along the border. 5/
It's critically important that we keep the pressure on Congress and on conferees so that they don't agree to a bad deal that would give Trump even more money to terrorize immigrant families. 6/
And Trump explicitly said that he would shutdown the government or use an emergency declaration to get it. So the stakes are just as high now as they have ever been. 7/
@SenSchumer and @SpeakerPelosi deserve a lot of credit for holding Dems together. They have power and they're using it. 8/
Very proud to work with @NILC_org @UNITEDWEDREAM @SBCCoalition @DetentionWatch @UndocuBlack @MoveOn ...all of whom will be making sure we don't get a bad deal on Feb. 15. 9/
And no, I don't know if the SOTU is back on. End/
