The US Senate voted 81-18 to break the filibuster and reopen the government on this Monday morning. The two sides agreed to keep negotiations towards a settlement on the Dreamers legislation until Feb. 8.

“In a few hours, the government will reopen,” said NY Sen. Chuck Schumer, the Democratic leader. “We have a lot to do.”

As reported in the New York Times, Schumer  announced that he and Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the Republican leader, had “come to an arrangement” to adopt the three-week spending measure while continuing to negotiate a “global agreement” that would include the fate of the dreamers, undocumented immigrants brought to the country as children.
