White Home voicemail blames Democrats for shutdown

White Home voicemail blames Democrats for shutdown

"Due to this obstruction, the government is shut down", the message continues. No decision was made, Politico reported. "The Dems just want illegal immigrants to pour into our nation unchecked", Trump said in his tweet.

Meanwhile, the stalemate goes on.

A government spending bill would need 60 votes to pass the Senate, which would mean that about nine Democrats would have to vote in favor of it.

A leaked draft of the White House's infrastructure plan has surfaced over at Axios, and although specific funding numbers are not attached, the document offers the first details in what has so far been a fairly confusing process. Democrats are pushing for a legislative fix to the program, which Trump rescinded a year ago with a six-month delay.

"So, I think that honestly there's a lot of progress here", Short said. Republicans would love it to be, but Democrats are holding a hard line to make sure that dreamers-immigrants who moved to the US when they were young, and in many cases have spent most of their lives here-remain protected.

The Senate leaders are hoping to come to an agreement to keep the White House open and funded until February 8. "We look forward to taking your calls as soon as the government reopens".

Democrats insisted they have been willing to compromise but Republicans backed out of deals. Many Democrats have said they will oppose any government-funding bill that does not preserve DACA and protect Dreamers.

The White House on Sunday changed the voicemail for its public comment telephone line to blame Democrats for the current government shutdown.
