The Senate blocked a GOP-backed bill to fund the government and President Donald Trump's border wall Thursday.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell Repeats You Didn't Say He Won't Go Back Trump does not support ̵
The democratic house has repeatedly voted to fund the closed quarter of the government or individual departments without spending money on the wall. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has urged McConnell to pass the measures.
"Let's have that discussion [about border security] after we opened to the government," she told reporters Thursday.
The Senate vote Thursday comes as the financial pain felt by 800,000 federal employees is sharpened. On Friday, these workers will start losing their second pay slips since the partial closure started on December 22.
Thousands of government officials have encrypted to pay for meals and cover their bills. The interruption has affected various services from airports to FBI investigations and food safety inspections. As hundreds of thousands of workers face furloughs or work without wages, decommissioning is expected to reduce gross domestic product growth.
Studies show that most Americans see the closure as a "crisis" or at least a "problem". They virtually put the closure on Trump's shoulders. As the Americans seek an end to the deathplace, several of them believe that the president should give up believing that Congress Democrats should, according to a CBS News poll.
Kills represent broader gridlock in Washington. On Wednesday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she would stop Trump from giving her EU address in the House Chamber until the end. The president gave in and said late Wednesday that he would deliver the speech when the closure is over rather than finding another place.
The republican plan that failed would yield 5.7 billion. Dollars to build the presidential proposed wall. In an attempt to appease Democrats, Trump offered a three-year extension of legal protection for immigrants brought to the United States illegally, as children and migrants fled crises in some countries. It would also put more than $ 12 billion in disaster relief among other provisions.
Democrats resigned as the limited concessions for "Dreamers" did not go as far as previous proposals that offer permanent residence or even a road to citizenship. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on Wednesday called the plan "one-sided, hard partisan and made in bad faith."
Earlier Thursday, McConnell described the democratically supported plan as a "who has no chance of being allowed to solve the problem," according to The Washington Post. He did not comment on journalists what the next steps would be if the bills failed.
It is unclear what steps legislators and Trump will take next time. Earlier Thursday, Pelosi would "meet with [Trump] when he wants to meet" as the interruption continues.
She also denied reports of a brewing of Democratic Counter Officer for Trump that would include $ 5.7 billion. Dollars for technology and other border security measures, but not a new barrier. Democrats have insisted that the United States can secure its borders without a wall, as Trump describes it.
Trump knocked down that performance Thursday. He wrote in a tweet: "Very simple, without a wall it doesn't work."
He added, "We don't want to cave!"
