Earlier Tuesday, House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., declined to describe the status of internal GOP budget talks after House Republicans met privately to discuss their next steps. "They want to have illegal immigrants, in many cases people that we don't want in our country, they want to have illegal immigrants pouring into our country, bringing with them crime, tremendous amounts of crime".

While the legislation eliminates the threat of an immediate shutdown, it does not resolve questions about how the government should be funded down the road.

The bill passed 235-193, with 18 Republicans voting against it and 14 Democrats voting for it.

Negotiations are sure to be tricky.

The immigrants are viewed sympathetically by the public and most lawmakers but face deportation in a few months because President Donald Trump reversed administrative protections provided to them by former President Barack Obama.

On Thursday, leaders from both parties will meet with President Trump at the White House.

Republican House conservatives and defense hawks are pushing for a separate bill to address defense spending because it would allow them to circumvent having to make a deal with Democrats on raising spending caps.

The White House has long said the 20 percent corporate rate was a "red line" for President Trump, but Mr. Trump also said recently that figure could rise during the coming negotiations.

He says: "We're all here as a very friendly, well-unified group".

"Republicans say the facts be damned as they rush this legislation out of desperation - not deliberation", said Rep. Sander Levin, Michigan Democrat.

Schumer and House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi skipped a meeting with him last week after Trump tweeted that he doubted he could reach any deal with them.

Democrats promise to us their leverage to insist on spending boosts for health care, infrastructure and other domestic programs that would match increases Republicans want for defense.

Conservatives have lamented the stopgap spending bills passed by Congress in recent years to keep the government open.

The fight over how long to keep the government running after its current funding expires at 12:01 a.m. on December 9 added unexpected drama to what is typically a sleepy vote on allowing the two chambers to start hammering out a compromise between their two versions of the tax overhaul.

Hardline conservative House Republicans want to break out funding for the military from an overall funding bill so they can increase defense spending, and to get what they want they are willing to support a two-week budget extension that would avoid a government shutdown. Thursday's vote is meant to give congressional leaders and the White House enough time to work out a broader spending agreement and presages possible Senate passage Friday.

The drama over whether the House will pass legislation preventing a weekend partial government shutdown is essentially over.

But House conservatives - upset by leaders' planned time frame on a short-term spending bill to keep the government open past the end of the week - almost derailed Monday's proceedings before enough of them ultimately relented.

"There is a whole lot more pressure to get home for Christmas than there is for New Year's", Rep. Mark Meadows (R., N.C.), chairman of the Freedom Caucus, told reporters after the vote.

Jordan and a handful of his fellow Freedom Caucus colleagues gave Republican leadership a scare Monday night when they threatened to vote against sending tax reform legislation to a conference committee.
