Senate fails to pass bill to avoid government shutdown

Senate fails to pass bill to avoid government shutdown Senate fails to pass bill to avoid government shutdown

Both parties failed to reach an agreement on a broad budget for the last few months, and the government is now running on its third stopgap measure.

Spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said the Democrats´ insistence that the interim measure include protection for undocumented immigrants who arrived as children killed the deal. But Democrats are saying this is about DACA; this is about being promised that there will be a solution for the 700,000 or so people in this program that President Trump has publicly said - he wants a fix for them, too.

Predictions of the shutdown came after Democrats expressed their dissatisfaction with Trump's recent comments on immigrants from foreign countries, like Haiti, El Salvador and African countries, which lawmakers said Trump referred to as "shithole countries", in a meeting on Thursday, Jan. 11.

Lieutenant Colonel Brad Leighton says it could happen again.

After the shutdown began, the White House said it would not negotiate the status of the Dreamers "while Democrats hold our lawful citizens hostage over their reckless demands". This legislation would likely be dead on arrival in the Senate, where Democrats have said they have enough votes to block the legislation.

Schumer, meanwhile, blamed Trump for the shutdown. Behind the scenes, however, leading Republicans and Democrats were trying to work out a compromise to avert a lengthy shutdown.

Government shutdowns impact federal workers and most will are not able to receive payment for the time of shutdown. Another vote is expected to take place before the shutdown at midnight.

What's the Montreal Cognitive Assessment mental test Trump took?
The screening was carried out using a test called the Montreal Cognitive Assessment , on which Trump scored 30-30, Jackson said. Jackson said he would increase that dose in an effort to get Trump's bad cholesterol, or LDL level, below 120; it now is 143.

United States government shutdown looms, lawmakers in hectic negotiations
The senator condemned Republican leaders in Congress, who he said left Democrats out of discussions on the spending legislation. House Speaker Paul Ryan immediately summoned reporters to try to pin the blame on top Senate Democrat Chuck Schumer of NY .

He added: "You have troops headed down range to Kuwait for six months and they are anxious about the fact that they aren't going to get paid right away, it's unconscionable". If it passes, the government will remain funded for the next four weeks. Now, Democrats are of course a minority in Congress, but they have some leverage in the Senate because Republicans don't have the 60 votes there they need to pass a spending bill on their own. Theoretically, a majority of Republicans could have gotten behind the plan and Democrats could have "blocked" it. That seems to be the only progress we've seen on the Republican side.

Mr McConnell and Mr Schumer insisted they were still committed to finding an agreement that restores government funding as soon as possible.

Commenting on the government shutdown, US President Donald Trump said, "This is the One Year Anniversary of my Presidency and the Democrats wanted to give me a nice present". Only Trump's chief of staff, John Kelly, and Schumer's chief of staff were in the room with the senator and the president.

MITCH MCCONNELL: I wish for all of our sakes that the Democratic leader would figure out what he actually wants. "When Democrats start paying our armed forces and first responders, we will reopen negotiations on immigration reform".

In a shutdown, "essential" employees who deal with public safety and national security would keep working.

Members of the House of Representatives are due to convene at 9am on Saturday in the US Capitol for fresh talks.

Trump in September cancelled the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals programme, which has almost 800,000 participants.
