Sen. Chuck Schumer said Monday that Democrats and Republicans have reached a bipartisan deal to end the government shutdown until February 8th, by which time if a deal is not reached, the Senate will immediately look to DACA legislation.

Why it matters: Not everyone is happy with the agreement, however, and numerous senators are still voting "no."

  • Sen. Kamala Harris sent a statement saying that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's words on DACA "fell far short of the ironclad guarantee I needed to support a stopgap spending bill".
  • Sen. Kristen Gillibrand tweeted: "I want to see the government re-open as much as anyone, but this bill fails to fix the moral issue we must solve. That's why I voted against it."
  • Sen. Elizabeth Warren tweeted: "It’s been over 100 days since protection for 800k Dreamers ended, since community health centers were funded, since hurricanes ravaged TX, FL & PR. The Republicans refused to fix any of these issues– and they still haven't fixed them. We don't need new promises. We need new laws."
  • Sen. Bob Menendez tweeted: "I couldn’t vote for this CR because nothing in the bill gave me any confidence that in three weeks Congress won’t end up exactly where we are today."
  • Sen. Ed Markey tweeted: "I remain deeply skeptical of any short-term budget agreement that relies on the good faith commitment of @realDonaldTrump. A budgetary vision without funding is a hallucination."
  • Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto tweeted, ".@realDonaldTrump created a crisis when he ended #DACA. Now, thousands of #Dreamers have lost their status, their jobs, & living in fear of deportation. Pitting Americans against one another is no way to govern. I voted no on cloture b/c Dreamers cannot wait. We must act now."

Other Dems who voted "no:"

  • Sen. Corey Booker
  • Sen. Richard Blumenthal
  • Sen. Dianne Feinstein
  • Sen. Mazie Hirono
  • Sen. Patrick Leahy
  • Sen. Jeff Merkley
  • Sen. Chris Murphy
  • Sen. Bernie Sanders
  • Sen. Jon Tester
  • Sen. Ron Wyden

Republicans who voted no:

  • Sen. Mike Lee “believes the federal government should be funded through an open and honest process that allows for transparency and amendments. This continuing resolution was crafted behind closed doors and no amendments were allowed," a Lee spokesman told Axios.
  • Sen. Rand Paul, who rarely votes for any budget that does not balance.

Exclusive: GOP Leader McCarthy asks to meet with Biden about the border

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) has requested a meeting with President Biden to discuss the rising numbers of unaccompanied migrant children at the U.S.-Mexico border, in a letter sent on Friday.

Why it matters: Biden is facing criticism from the right and the left as agency actions and media reports reveal spiking numbers of migrant children overwhelming parts of the U.S. immigration system. Recent data shows an average of 321 kids being referred to migrant shelters each day, as Axios reported.

Vaccine hesitancy drops, but with partisan divide

69% of the public intends to get a COVID vaccine or already has, up significantly from 60% in November, according to a report out Friday from the Pew Research Center.

Yes, but: The issue has become even more partisan, with 56% of Republicans who say they want or have already received a coronavirus vaccine compared to 83% of Democrats.

China's 5-year plan is hazy on climate

China's highly anticipated 5-year plan revealed on Friday provides little new information about its climate initiatives, leaving plenty to discuss in multinational meetings this year and lots of blanks for China to fill in later.

Driving the news: The top-line targets for 2025, per state media, aim to lower energy intensity by 13.5% and carbon emissions intensity by 18% — that is, measures of energy use and emissions relative to economic output.
