While everyone is gushing over Oprah Winfrey, the Democrats in D.C. can hide the fact that they’re holding the spending bill hostage over the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA) program.

Before Christmas, Congress passed a short term spending bill to keep the government running until January 19. The Democrats have made...
