Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
On today's show: the U.S. Senate voted to re-open the federal Government on Monday, and Democrats appear to have folded in their demand that Republicans include protections for 800,000 "Dreamers" (in the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program) in a short-term spending bill in exchange for a promise (of sorts) from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to allow a vote on DACA in coming weeks. Callers weigh in on the politics of the shutdown, whether Democrats were correct to give in, the angry progressives and immigration advocates who are furious about it, and whether there's a chance in hell that Republicans will allow a real fix to DACA without being forced to do so. Also today: the corporate media absurdly under-reported the massive Women's Marches around the nation; a natural gas rig exploded in Oklahoma; and Pennsylvania's state Supreme Court ordered the Republican-controlled state legislature to redraw gerrymandered U.S. House maps in time for the 2018 primaries, which begin in weeks in the Keystone State.  Brad Friedman, Desi Doyen
