Here's where negotiations stand, one day into the government shutdown

22 Enero 2018

The United States government shut down on Saturday, after members of Congress failed to reach an agreement on the divisive issue of immigration and government spending.

Late Friday, all but five Democrats voted against a GOP measure that would have kept the government open through Feb. 16, but did not address immigration.

In a calculated show of political grandstanding, Schumer appeared to be banking on a belief that Trump hates the impression that he is being managed by his staff or outside influences.

Democrats have insisted their leaders dig in on extending an Obama-era program, known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), offering protection against deportation to an estimated 800,000 immigrants brought to this country illegally as young children. The president's behavior unamenable to compromise.

A video ad released on Saturday by Trump's presidential campaign that says Democrats will be "complicit" in murders by illegal immigrants could inflame tensions.

Moderate New Jersey Republican Tom MacArthur blasted: "I think this is extremely irresponsible". Republicans sought more time for talks, but Democrats refused.

Republicans have a tenuous one-seat majority in the Senate, but on Friday needed to lure some Democrats to their side to get a 60 vote supermajority to bring the motion forward.

Trump slammed the idea of a continuing resolution between the Democrats and Republicans in the Sunday tweet as the two parties try to lay blame on each other for the partial shutdown of the federal government.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Mick Mulvaney stormed Washington as a tea party lawmaker elected in 2010, and he hasn't mellowed much as director of the Office of Management of Budget at the White House. "And how important it would be to have a full, wide open debate on the different proposals that Democrats and Republicans have on how to deal with border security and how to deal with DACA". "It's entirely the president's doing". "The same chaos, the same disarray, the same division and discord on the Republican side that's been in the background of these negotiations for months unfortunately appears endemic".

We will not negotiate the status of unlawful immigrants while Democrats hold our lawful citizens hostage over their reckless demands. This smaller group of informal advisers has seen Trump favor those who tell him what he likes to hear, according to several people who talk to him regularly. Schumer spending 90 minutes in the oval office.

"Negotiating with this White House is like negotiating with Jell-O, it is next to impossible", Schumer told reporters.

Asked on ABC's "This Week" if he could say whether the government would reopen on Monday, Senator Richard J. Durbin of Illinois, the No. 2 Senate Democrat, demurred.

In the larger context of awards season "The Shape of Water's" win Saturday surprised some who expected "Three Billboards" to continue its ascendancy after the Globes.

Republicans blamed Democrats for angling for the DACA legislative fix over keeping the government open, using the hashtag #SchumerShutdown and launching an accompanying website focused on Schumer.

Speaking to U.S. troops at a military base in the Middle East, Vice President Mike Pence said, "We're not going to reopen negotiations on illegal immigration until they reopen the government and give you, our soldiers and your families, the benefits and wages you've earned".

Government operations began ramping down on the one-year anniversary of Trump's presidency.

The number two Republican in the Senate, John Cornyn of Texas, said in a floor speech that Democrats had "shot themselves in the foot, reloaded, and shot themselves in the other foot". And he was right, even if his party controlled the White House and the Senate. "It's absolutely meaningless", Mr. Ryan said on CBS's "Face the Nation." "The Stephen Miller approach to immigration has no viability. So the conclusion there is, 'the president has a 40 per cent approval rating there 60 per cent of the country is going to be with us.' Well, not when it comes to choosing people who are not Americans over American soldiers". The air traffic control system, food inspection, Medicare, veterans' health care and many other essential government programs will run as usual. "Today would be a good day to end it. This shutdown was a political miscalculation of gargantuan proportions, but it doesn't need to go on any longer". We just have to wait and see.

The calculation that both sides are making in the showdown is that the public will blame the other side.
