As the Senate voted on a continuing resolution to keep the government open until Feb. 8, senators from both sides of the aisle visited the White House to continue negotiating an immigration deal with Trump.

Why it matters: We could well be heading for another shutdown if no agreement on immigration is reached by Feb. 8.

The Republicans, per the White House:

  • Sen. Tom Cotton
  • Sen. John Cornyn
  • Sen. Chuck Grassley
  • Sen. James Lankford
  • Sen. David Perdue
  • Sen. Thom Tillis

The Democrats, per AP's Zeke Miller:

  • Sen. Joe Manchin
  • Sen. Doug Jones
