Government shutdown 2018

Scribe: N. Tru Bass



The federal government shut down went into effect five hours ago. Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle said they would continue to try and come to a resolution to get government workers off furlough and back on the payroll. Pundits believe the problem would be solved by Monday morning.


The elephant in the room is DACA, or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, is at the heart of the issue for lawmakers. Just after midnight on Saturday morning, the White House refused to negotiate and lawmakers are leveraged by the issue. A poll suggest Americans agree to protections for the children brought to this country by their parents, who know only America as home.

With the self proclaimed master of negotiations missing in action, new polls suggest 70 percent of Americans support keeping the people affected by this reneging by the US government, in the country.

Year to the day of the presidents inauguration, the government is shut down. The Obama approved measure allows some immigrants who were brought to the country illegally as children to live and work in the US without fear of deportation. Trump has made a point of trying to undo every measure sponsored by the predecessor to a degree of discomfort.
