Dems Protect 'Illegal Immigrants' Over Americans — WH Spins Shutdown

Dems Protect 'Illegal Immigrants' Over Americans — WH Spins Shutdown

Now, with the government in the third day of stoppage, the previous crawl might look like it was moving at warp speed, if the shutdown continues. "I say she does", Trump said.

Several hundred thousand United States government employees across numerous agencies are working without pay, while others have been sent hom on furlough.

- The remaining parts of the government, including the Defence Department, Departments of Labour and Health and Human Services, were already funded and won't be affected by the shutdown, nor will mandatory entitlement programs like Medicare payments. Only a few lawmakers presided over the brief sessions, while congressional leaders and rank-and-file members were nearly entirely absent. No votes are expected until next week, and even that's not guaranteed. Gingrich was consistently hostile to President Bill Clinton, and the House speaker's budgetary battles with Clinton led to shutdowns in November 1995 and December 1995/January 1996.

Meanwhile, the lead negotiators for the Democrats: Sen. "Federal employees don't go to work wearing red or blue jerseys". Roughly 420,000 workers were deemed essential and are working unpaid, while another 380,000 have been furloughed.

That would be a devastating blow and dump a tsunami of gloom on the holiday season, particularly for those government workers who have to show up to work without being paid.

The House followed suit with its own brief pro forma session at 4 p.m.as well, although there was a little more drama in that chamber. The shutdown began at midnight last Friday.

The shutdown started on Saturday when funding lapsed for nine Cabinet-level departments and dozens of agencies.

But Eisenbach suggested Trump has made a political miscalculation. his base may be committed to this idea, but many Americans - including the former Barack Obama voters who voted for him in 2016 - are more focused on issues like the economy. The House session lasted less than three minutes. "So we're getting it between 500 and 550 (miles)".

Some Democrats are reportedly hopeful they can reopen the government before January 3, which is when Democrats officially take over the House.

On Twitter, Mr Trump has repeatedly lashed out at Democrats, blaming them for the shutdown and claiming that most public servants not receiving salaries are Democrats.

We know that the above tweet was written by the president himself just by looking at his random use of capitalization and "gang members".

"The greatest asset we have is that most people around the world want to be allied with us".

"Federal workers should not be held hostage by the president's demand for a useless and offensive border wall that he promised Mexico would pay for". Only 25 percent said they supported Trump shutting down the government over the matter. "To them, this is further proof that Washington is dysfunctional no matter who is in charge", he said.

Reaves said the shutdown could have consequences that stretch beyond a temporary suspension of salary. "So that gives us enormous ability to, it's a force multiplier, it's a great ability to achieve our goals and I don't think the president shares that view almost to the extent that the rest of us do", Toomey said on NBC.

Presumably he meant the next general election, which will be in November 2020 when he is on the ballot for a second term. Shutdown conditions make everything worse. "If not, one of the first things we'll do will be to move to pass legislation to re-open the government". "We've got single fathers who have child support, alimony". And you'll see what's going on there. Of the federal employees surveyed, 1,954 were members of a union while 6,607 were not.
