Government Shutdown Over

At 12:46 EST the United States Senate passed a Temporary Spending Bill (81 Yay's to 18 nay's) to open the government back up. This spending Bill will expire a lot earlier than the Senate Republicans initially wanted, but it's a compromise for Senate Democrats. The Bill has to pass the House and then President Trump before becoming official, but that seems like formality at this point. This will likely give the Senate plenty of time to debate DACA before it expires in March...

...more to come this evening.
