Shutdown drags on for 2nd day amid blame game on both sides

Shutdown drags on for 2nd day amid blame game on both sides

The Senate is not expected to reconvene until 1 p.m.

That plan could include funding for storm-ravaged states, reauthorization of the Children's Health Insurance Program - and an implicit agreement to hold votes at some point in the coming weeks on a bipartisan immigration deal, according to senators involved in the discussions.

Five Republicans joined the majority of Democrats and succeeded in blocking the vote on the House bill, and five conservative-state Democrats voted with Republicans to move forward.

Hours after shuttering much of the federal government, feuding Democrats and Republicans in Congress spent Saturday dodging blame for a paralyzing standoff over immigration and showed few signs of progress on negotiations needed to end it.

"We'll be right back at this tomorrow and for as long as it takes" for Democrats to vote for legislation that would reopen the government, McConnell said.

"There was a larger conversation about having the Senate actually function again", Coons said.

On Friday, Schumer went to the White House for further negotiations. "When you're holding our troops hostage and essentially denying services to law-abiding Americans and denying funding to our border agents, how you can negotiate on DACA during that?"

"There's not going to be any DACA talks when this government is shutdown", Arkansas GOP Rep. Steve Womack said Saturday morning.

The issue had come up during internal party deliberations. "So we will see sometime today whether or not they have the votes for that (in the Senate)".

Lawmakers in both chambers were scheduled to return to work this afternoon.

"The President needs to step up and lead".

What were they fighting about?

Moderate New Jersey Republican Tom MacArthur blasted: "I think this is extremely irresponsible".

But the president has sent repeated mixed messages over what legislation he would sign on immigration.

But "even that was not enough to entice the president to finish the deal", Schumer said, accusing Trump and Republicans of "rooting for a shutdown" which would "crash entirely" on the president's shoulders.

Tempers were short and theatrics high.

The balance of power was very different in those years.

Rahall says wave elections - one party wins a huge number of seats, often sweeping into control of the House or Senate - are getting "bigger and occurring more often because of the shenanigans the American people view are going on in Congress. I expect another wave this year, perhaps bigger than ever". She said Republicans are "so incompetent and negligent that they couldn't get it together to keep the government open". Lindsey Graham and Kentucky Sen.

Sure, Republicans and Democrats are battling over spending and immigration. And Democrats say a spending deal would also have to protect the immigrants who have been shielded from deportation by the DACA program.

The US government has begun a shutdown after a midnight deadline on Friday was missed to agree on a new budget.

The shutdown is now in its second day.

So far, Trump, McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) have refused to consider Democrats' demands until there is a bipartisan agreement to reopen the federal government.

"If we can't open the government back up and work through our differences, it would be a travesty". Forty-five Senate Democrats and five Senate Republicans voted against it, the Democrats saying that the bill needs a DACA fix and the Republicans for varying reasons, including, for some, DACA.

But Schumer called it the Trump shutdown.

Moderate senators hunkered down in Collins' office Saturday. "Unfortunately, a Trump shutdown would be a perfect encapsulation of the chaos he has unleashed on our government".

Trump canceled a trip to his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida that included a major fundraiser on the anniversary of his first year as president.

How long will the shutdown last? "The shutdown is all yours".

His inability to cut a deal despite enjoying a Republican majority in both houses of Congress highlighted the deep political divide in Washington. Arizona Senator John McCain is out of the senate while he deals with health complications. "The Dems just want illegal immigrants to pour into our nation unchecked", Trump tweeted before 8 a.m. on Sunday.

"It's an odd moment, you have a women's march and you have a country with a government shut down", DuVernay said.
