Harris said Monday’s deal falls “far short” of the “ironclad guarantee” of protections for recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), an Obama-era program that allowed undocumented immigrants who came to the United States as children to secure approval to work and go to school here. 

Harris said that she doesn’t trust McConnell’s promise to bring a DACA bill to the floor in the next month.

“I refuse to put the lives of nearly 700,000 young people in the hands of someone who has repeatedly gone back on his word,” Harris said. “I will do everything in my power to continue to protect Dreamers from deportation.”

The deal reached Monday would reopen the government and fund it through Feb. 8. McConnell has promised to bring an immigration bill addressing those protected under DACA within the next month. The program is set to expire in March.

“Now there is a real pathway to get a bill on the floor and through the Senate,” Schumer said Monday.

But the deal falls short of Democrats’ initial demands, raising questions among liberals about the point of the government shutdown and what they got in return for agreeing to reopen it.

Senate Democrats had initially demanded that Republicans agree in principle to a deal that would provide permanent protections for DACA recipients.
