The US government remains partially closed Sunday for the second day, and there is no sign of a possible end to the deadlock between the Democratic and Republican factions on the federal budget and immigration issues.
American President Donald Trump presses Congress to resolve the dispute, and suggest via Twitter that if this continues, the Republican faction should revoke the long-standing rule that requires a large majority vote to pass the main bill in the Senate assembly. He said the Republican fraction should impose a simple or narrow majority could pass a long-term budget draft so that a temporary funding bill would not be needed.
Senate members condemned throughout Saturday over who was guilty of the first government shutdown since 2013 , even while some moderate Senators from both parties counseled to see if they could broker an agreement that would reopen the government in time to start the workday this week on Monday.
The majority leader or Republican fraction in the Senate, Mitch McConnell, has scheduled a vote voice at 1am Monday, possibly earlier, of a new temporary budget draft that will open the government until February 8th. But the Democratic faction still insisted strongly on approval to include protection against deportation for nearly 800,000 young immigrants who years ago were taken to the United States illegally by their parents.
Trump whistles on Sunday, "delighted to see how hard the Republican faction fight for our Military and Salvation in the Borders "with Mexico, where Trump wants funds to build walls that would hamper illegal immigration. "Democratic factions only want illegal immigrants to flood into our country unhindered," said President Trump through his cuitan. [gp]
