LGBT groups place blame on Trump for government shutdown

President Donald Trump congratulates Senate Majority Leader Mitch Mc Connell of Ky. while House Speaker Paul Ryan of Wis. watches to acknowledge the final passage of tax overhaul legislation by Congress at the White House in Washington Wednesday Dec. 2

Senators resumed debate Saturday afternoon on a temporary spending bill that would fund the government through February 8.

Democrats are to blame for the shutdown, namely Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, Smucker told LNP Saturday.

Mr Trump accused Democrats of being more concerned with "Illegal Immigrants than they are with our great Military or Safety at our dangerous" border with Mexico.

Afterward, Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wisconsin, said he was urging Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-New York, not to shut down the government.

It was unclear which way the vote would go as the midnight deadline approached, with Republicans and Democrats split on key issues. The Republican leadership needs to gather roughly a dozen Democrats to their side to come up with a 60-vote filibuster-proof majority.

May 1, 1980: Only one agency - the Federal Trade Commission - stopped working for one day after the government failed to decide how much the agency should be spending. "Are they now so desperate they'll shut down the government instead?"

"The Statue of Liberty National Monument and Ellis Island are closed due to a lapse in appropriations", a notice on the National Park Service's website said, while a sign at US military cemetery in France where 4,409 Americans are buried read: "Due to the US Government shut down, this site is closed to the public".

In previous shutdowns, services deemed "essential", such as the work of the Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, have continued. These include national security, postal services, air traffic control, inpatient medical services, emergency outpatient medicine, disaster assistance, prisons, taxation and electricity generation.

"Democrats are far more concerned with illegal immigrants than they are with our great military or safety at our risky southern border", he said.

The source close to the White House told CNN that the White House believes Schumer will press for some concessions for "a few days if that long" as they work to strike a budget deal.

Democrats, however, appeared determined to block the measure, insisting on a deal that would protect from deportation so-called "Dreamers" - the 700,000 immigrants who entered the country illegally as children. That extension effectively forced Democrats in the Senate to choose between recipients of CHIP, as the insurance program is known, and Dreamers, who have come to exert a powerful influence on congressional Democrats. Most Republicans, including President Trump, favor this amnesty as well, but the parties have been unable to agree on what other policies, such as restrictions on follow-on immigration from the amnesty, should be coupled with it.

The 2013 shutdown cost the economy an estimated $20 billion, according to an estimate from Moody's Analytics.

What could be the political fallout?

However, with mid-term elections looming in November, neither party wishes to be held accountable for closing the government.

The last United States shutdown lasted for 16 days in October 2013, with around 800,000 workers granted leave.

(Chuck Schumer, the top Democrat in the Senate, is seen as the prime opponent to the stopgap budget).

"President Trump and GOP leaders rejected workable solutions to bring the wheels of government to a grinding halt to pursue a cruel, racist agenda", Hanley said. "He understands golf, ice cream, and Big Macs!"

What happened during the 2013 shutdown?

Neal added that "there's no need for a Trump shutdown" and stressed that his offices will remain open and continue doing what they can to help local families and businesses despite the shutdown.

Mulvaney and Short said the administration and lawmakers need to discuss more details of DACA, and should wait until after approval of a new spending bill.
