"One will not go without the other".

"This will be called the 'Trump shutdown, '" Schumer continued.

"This is the behavior of obstructionist losers, not legislators", Sanders said in the statement.

Democrats believe that the fact that the GOP controls the House, the Senate and the White House will prompt voters to blame Trump and his troops.

International ratings agency Fitch said a partial shutdown was unlikely to affect America's AAA/stable rating for US sovereign debt.

A pending Senate measure would last through Feb. 8. And they have been for months.

"Thank you for calling the White House".

According to a report in The Guardian, federal law requires agencies to shut down if Congress has not appropriated money to fund them.

Chief of Staff John Kelly has spoken with House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell joined Trump in attacking Democrats.

Under Senate rules, the three-week stopgap spending bill needs 60 votes in the 100-member chamber to overcome blocking tactics by opponents. The Republican president took a new swipe at Democrats as he celebrated the Senate's pact.

Republicans have a tenuous one-seat majority in the Senate but would have needed to lure some Democrats to their side to get a 60 vote supermajority to bring the motion forward.

"A similar email gives an auto reply sent to those White House staffers who are not working due to the shutdown". The Republican leader adjourned the Senate for the night but it will reconvene Sunday "as long as it takes". "Today is the right day to do it", McConnell said. The Democrats just want illegal immigrants to pour into our nation unchecked.

Republicans have appeared increasingly confident that Democrats were bearing the brunt of criticism for the shutdown and that they would ultimately buckle. McConnell and Schumer said negotiations lasted late into the night.

New York's branch of CHIP - Child Health Plus, administered by the state Department of Health - covers 356,000 children.

U.S. stocks advanced on Monday as each of Wall Street's main indexes touched a record intraday level after the shutdown deal.

McConnell called the standoff the "Schumer Shutdown", mocking Democratic leader Charles Schumer, who in turn laid the blame for the government's first hiatus since 2013 on Trump, dubbing it the "Trump Shutdown".

Last week, Trump rejected a bipartisan Senate deal that would have accomplished that as well as hand the White House $2.7 billion in new money for immigration enforcement at America's borders.

Like the president, McConnell blamed the Democrats.

Democratic lawmakers have demanded that a spending deal should include protections for young immigrants.

Democrats are aligning behind a plan to reopen the federal government as the Senate heads toward a key vote.

US President Donald Trump said in September he was shutting the scheme, after previously saying they would be protected. "They can't even get on the same page with their president, the president of their own party". But Trump said the "nuclear option" of a simple-majority vote was necessary. Lindsey Graham - who voted against the House-passed CR - was optimistic Saturday morning.

Our administration will do everything within our power to support the brave men and women in uniform who stand on the front lines of freedom.

The Democrats wanted to achieve agreement on the Obama-era DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) program in their effort to protect "dreamers", migrants, who were brought to the US as children. "It's scary", Noelle Joll, 50, a furloughed US government employee, told AFP in Washington.

Sunday morning, the fragile outlines of a potential deal began to take shape.

Senate Republicans now hold a 51-49 edge.

That means a halt to all but the most essential operations.

It found that, while the public largely supports protections for "dreamers", more than half of Americans said it was more important to keep the government open. He says, "This is pure politics".

The U.S. government had not previously been shut down since 2013, when about 800,000 federal workers were put on furlough.

He says, "They need to open the government tonight or tomorrow and then we can start talking".

Funding for federal agencies ran out at midnight on Friday amid an impasse between President Donald Trump, congressional Republicans and Democrats over DACA and other immigration issues. They have enough funding tucked away to remain open for the near future. The scene highlighted political stakes for both parties in an election-year shutdown.
