The Senate will be voting on two dueling proposals Thursday to reopen the government. The first is President Trump's proposed compromise for border wall funding in exchange for an extension of DACA and TPS, while the second is a clean continuing resolution that would fund agencies through Feb. 8.

Driving the news: Payroll processor ADP's monthly jobs report showed private companies added 167,000 jobs last month, well below the 1.2 million expected by economists and far below June's 4.8 million jobs added.
