With a $400 billion budget deal now signed, Washington is bracing for a looming fight over immigration. But finding compromise over the future of the so-called "Dreamer" immigrants will be challenging, especially in the wake of the fraught negotiations that culminated in this week's brief shutdown Friday. House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wisconsin, decried it as the "second needless shutdown in a matter of weeks."

The White House also dealt with the fallout this week from Rob Porter's resignation after he was accused of domestic abuse. Formerly the White House staff secretary and among chief of staff John Kelly's most trusted aides, he served for a year in the White House despite the claims stalling a full formal security clearance. Porter has continued to deny the allegations.

And after a controversial memo was released last week by congressional Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee, Democrats are now calling for the release of their own memo. President Trump is now reviewing the document which reportedly rebuts allegations the FBI and Department of Justice abused their surveillance powers to spy on the Trump campaign.

This Sunday on "Face the Nation" (@FaceTheNation), we'll bring you the latest on all that and more with guest host Major Garrett (@MajorCBS), chief White House correspondent for CBS News and host of "The Takeout" podcast (@TakeoutPodcast).

We'll talk with Mick Mulvaney (@MickMulvaneyOMB), director of the White House Office of Management and Budget and acting director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. We'll ask him about the budget deal President Trump has touted as a "BIG VICTORY" for the military, as well as the "much waste" the president says was necessary to add to the bill to get Democratic support.

We'll ask Sen. Rand Paul (@RandPaul), R-Kentucky, about the brief shutdown he forced Thursday by stalling a key vote on the budget deal. He says he "didn't want them to shut down at all" and only wanted senators to "act like their spending matters." We'll ask him to respond to the barrage of criticism that has followed, some from his own party.

Rep. Mark Meadows (@RepMarkMeadows), R-North Carolina, called the deal "fiscally irresponsible" and said he was "profoundly disappointed" in it. We'll ask him what he, and the conservative House Freedom Caucus he chairs, makes of the spending agreement and negotiations that led up to it

We'll sit down with the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, Rep. Adam Schiff (@RepAdamSchiff), D-California. What should we expect from the Democratic rebuttal memo? What does he make of reports that divisions have deepened between Republicans and Democrats on the committee?

As always, we'll bring together an expert political panel to help us break down the busy news week. This Sunday, we'll be joined by:

  • Peter Beinart (@PeterBeinart), Contributing Editor at the Atlantic and CNN Political Commentator
  • Susan Davis (@DaviSusan), Congressional Correspondent for NPR
  • Susan Glasser (@sbg1), Chief International Affairs Columnist at Politico
  • Ramesh Ponnuru (@RameshPonnuru), Senior Editor for the National Review, Columnist for Bloomberg View, and Visiting Fellow at the American Enterprise Institute

And we'll talk to Joseph A. Califano, Jr. (@josephcalifano), author of "Our Damaged Democracy: We the People Must Act." House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-California, says Califano "brilliantly laid out the causes and consequences of obstruction in Washington and a rousing call to action to deal with them." We'll ask him about his new book.
