Both Sides Dig In Over Shutdown

“Republicans and Democrats spent the first hours of the government shutdown Saturday taking partisan shots and moving no closer to resolving the funding crisis,” Politico reports.

“Republicans accused Democrats of prioritizing “illegal immigrants” over American citizens by insisting that protections for young immigrants facing deportation be included in any spending deal… Democrats countered that the situation is a product of President Donald Trump’s constantly shifting positions and embrace of the most hard-line stance on immigration.”

Washington Post: “Sensing the upper hand, top House Republicans have ruled out negotiating on a major Democratic priority — immigration policy — until the shutdown ends.”
