Lou Barletta: Dems Put Illegal Immigrants over American Citizens with Schumer's Shutdown

21 Janvier 2018

At the peak of the 2013 government shutdown, about 850,000 employees were furloughed per day, according to the Office of Management and Budget.

The White House doesn't necessarily view the confusion as a problem.

His failure to win passage by the U.S. Congress of a stopgap bill to maintain funding for the federal government further damaged his self-crafted image as a dealmaker who would fix the broken culture in Washington.

We need a long-term budget in place that reflects our values and we know that this bill falls short.

The Republican-controlled House of Representatives passed a temporary funding measure on Thursday.

Results from the final Senate vote on the Republican bill aimed at thwarting a shutdown were announced around midnight and it was 10 votes short. Republicans went on to retake control of the Senate in the 2014 midterm elections.

But an impasse over immigration negotiations has pushed Democrats, and Republicans to stand against this short-term spending deal.

While private citizens, for the most part, won't feel the impact of the USA government shutting down, University of Toronto economic analysis professor Walid Hejazi says the Canadian economy probably will.

Having stated that McConnell has bullied Democrats time and time again by forcing them to "take it or leave it" with legislation, Schumer moved on to highlighting that he attempted to negotiate a deal with the president in the waning hours before the shutdown.

The U.S. government began shutting down Friday night after weeks of deliberations ultimately failed to resolve partisan disagreements on immigration and spending.

Vice President Mike Pence earlier raised the issue of soldiers' salaries after meeting with U.S. military personnel ahead of a three-country tour of the Middle East. "That's the right approach".

That's why Republicans feel much better about their standing than 4½ years ago, when no one ever talked about unity - and when no one ever said "we're relaxed and comfortable", as Hudson did this time around. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Sen.

Republicans were saddled with the blame, but most Americans suffered relatively minor inconveniences such as closed parks and delays in processing passport applications. For instance, just eight Democratic senators voted against a CR on December 7. Dick Durbin (D-IL), along with well as Sen. One Democrat that's sure to vote for a CR is West Virginia's Joe Manchin. "They own this #TrumpShutdown", California Democrat Ted Lieu said on Twitter.

Sixty votes were needed to advance the bill to keep the government open, but it failed 50-49.

Lawmakers have been locked in a standoff over government funding, to which Democrats have vowed to attach measures that would codify protections for the young unauthorized immigrants now shielded from deportation under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

She said that until the shutdown ends, the White House will not resume negotiations on the fate of hundreds of thousands of young immigrants who entered the country illegally as children.

The Freedom Caucus's primary concerns have been immigration and defense spending.

The last one was a 16-day partial closing of the government in 2013, which came as Tea Party conservatives, cheered on by outside groups like Heritage Action, demanded that language to block implementation of President Barack Obama's health care law be added to a must-do funding bill.
