US shutdown ends as Democrats relent

GROUP ‘OUTRAGED’:Cristina Jimenez, executive director of United We Dream, said senators who voted in favor of the deal ‘are not resisting Trump, they are enablers’

AP, WASHINGTON

“They blinked,” White House principal deputy press secretary Raj Shah told CNN.

In a statement, Trump said he is open to an immigration deal only if it is “good for our country.”

Immigration activists and other groups harshly criticized the deal reached by the Democratic leadership.

Cristina Jimenez, executive director of United We Dream, said the members of the group are “outraged.”

She added that senators who voted in favor of the deal “are not resisting Trump, they are enablers.”

Other groups, such as the American Civil Liberties Union, expressed disappointment and similar criticism.
