Washington, Dec 22: The Federal government shutdown early Saturday after congress and White House officials failed to find compromise on spending bill attached with President Donald Trump’s demand for $ 5.7 billion for Southern border security wall.
It is a 3rd shutdown in two years with unified Republic rule.
Late Friday, both houses and Senate had adjourned with ‘no-solution’ in sight. As the Budget Director started to carry out of government shutdown, President Donald Trump announced this shutdown on Twitter that, “We are going to shutdown”.
He said, “There is nothing we can do about this, because we need the Democrats to give us their votes.”
This time, the Federal government of USA is partially shutdown, so some departments are funded.
But about, 3,80,000 workers are not working or working without pay. Another 4,20,000 considered essential to furloughed would force to work without pay like Border Patrol Officers.
During this shutdown, departments like Agriculture, Commerce, Homeland security, Housing and Urban Development, Justice, State, Transportation would be affected. NASA also have to face fund cutting.
If Mr. Trump insist on this demand of government shutdown, in the aftermath, Democrats already started to aid this with crafting legislation that would reopen the government on January 3, and the swearing of new members.
