Following the failed negotiations in the Congress by both Democrat and Republican parties, most government facilities in the US except the essential facilities have been forced to shut down. Under the shutdown, federal agencies will be granted absence from work or be forced to work without pay until the new funding is approved by the Congress. Notably, the negotiation process on legislation for protection of undocumented immigrants led to the stand-off in the Congress. However, a short-term funding proposal is being considered to reopen the government by early February. Check Trump's tweet here.
Democrats are far more concerned with Illegal Immigrants than they are with our great Military or Safety at our dangerous Southern Border. They could have easily made a deal but decided to play Shutdown politics instead. #WeNeedMoreRepublicansIn18 in order to power through mess!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 20, 2018
This is the One Year Anniversary of my Presidency and the Democrats wanted to give me a nice present. #DemocratShutdown— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 20, 2018
