This government shutdown is historic for one big reason

This government shutdown is historic for one big reason

US President Donald Trump marked the first anniversary of his inauguration on Saturday with his government in shutdown, lashing out at Democrats over the collapse of budget negotiations as Congress convened an emergency session to thrash out a deal.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said: "The President will not negotiate on immigration reform until Democrats stop playing games and re-open the government".

But in contrast to the sharp speeches from the respective party leaders, a few Republican senators sounded somewhat confident notes that they would receive enough support from Democrats to reopen the government on a short-term basis without a simultaneous deal on immigration.

In a late-night vote, Senate Democrats joined to block a bill that would have kept the government running until mid-February.

Seven months after former President Barack Obama was sworn in for his second term, House Republicans, with a shove from Sen.

From midnight Friday US time (4pm AEDT), in the absence of an agreed spending plan, federal services began to come to a halt or be scaled back.

Now, as the federal official in charge of managing government operations during the lapse in funding, Mulvaney is taking steps to ameliorate the shutdown, giving agencies more flexibility to remain open by using, for instance, previously appropriated money to keep their doors open.

"We have a racist in the White House, we have a sexist in the White House and we have a pathological liar in the White House who is tearing away at the fabric of our democracy", actor and producer Rob Reiner said at a rally in California.

Not only do more Americans say avoiding a shutdown is important than continuing DACA, a majority says finding a DACA fix is more important than opposing the wall.

"Let's get this done on a bipartisan basis", Durbin said of passing a spending bill that restores DACA.

This is not Chuck Schumer's shutdown. And if there is a shutdown, what does it mean for Americans across the country. Among young people, it's 50% avoid a shutdown to 42% maintain DACA.

The Statue of Liberty and Philadelphia's Liberty Bell were closed, but visitors had access to other sites such as Yellowstone.

A video ad released on Saturday by Trump's presidential campaign that says Democrats will be "complicit" in murders by illegal immigrants could inflame tensions. "Our military families, federal employees, and all others whose lives will be disrupted by this shutdown are in our thoughts". "It's extremely disappointing that Senate Democrats have shut down the government, blocking military pay and a full extension of the CHIP program, over a nonbudgetary issue". "This is the behavior of obstructionist losers, not legislators". We've already moved from arguments over the size of a nuclear button, to a false alarm about a nuclear attack on Hawaii; from #Oprah2020, to "girthers" questioning President Trump's height and weight. Trump blamed the Democrats for the shutdown which comes exactly a year after he was sworn in as the 45th President of the United States.

"It's like negotiating with Jell-O", the aide told CBS News' Nancy Cordes, adding, "the talks won't wrap up unless the president takes the reins". Democrats wanted a pathway to citizenship for those roughly 700,000 immigrants who were in the country illegally after being brought here as children. While the party has had a string of victories in recent elections, including a state Senate win last week in a Wisconsin district Trump won by 17 points, the Senate landscape for Democrats in November is perilous.

The White House put out a brief statement Sunday detailing the president's activities, saying the administration was hard at work.

Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the majority leader, lamented the Democrats' "fixation on illegal immigration" at the expense of addressing other matters. The lobbyist-funded ski trips and weekend getaways would soon dry up if there were no appropriations to dish out in return.

Mulvaney also told reporters during a press briefing Saturday that Trump's participation in the World Economic Forum is up in the air.

"How can you negotiate with the president under those circumstances where he agrees face to face to move forward with a certain path and then within two hours calls back and pulls the plug?" said Sen.
