USA: US Senate votes on short-term fix for government shutdown

The United States Senate has approved a temporary budget deal that will fund the US government until February 8, at Capitol Hill in Washington DC, Monday. The vote puts an end to the government shutdown, which entered its third day this morning as hundreds of thousands of «non-essential» federal workers were forced to stay at home. It is hoped that the latest deal will give the Democrat and... Еще Republican parties time to reach a larger agreement over immigration reform. The Democrats would like to extend the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which protects nearly 700,000 undocumented immigrants who came to the United States as children.
