As shutdown lingers, Pelosi urges Trump to reschedule State of the Union

The U.S. Capitol is seen as a Jogger

They helped us out with this, ' he said.

It also says that federal employees who were furloughed will receive back pay for not only the current shutdown but future shutdowns as well.

While the hit to the overall economy so far remains slight, economists foresee real damage if the shutdown drags into February or beyond. In light of the 800,000 great American workers not receiving pay, I am sure you would agree that postponing this public relations event it totally appropriate. Some posted photos of their empty earnings statements on social media as a rallying cry to end the shutdown.

If the impasse continues for another week, the shutdown would have cost about the same as Trump has demanded for the wall.

When Trump rhetorically backed off the wall and talked about "steel slats" - a fence - Democrats ignored it. They say they'll discuss border security once the government reopens.

We're going to keep lifting up the voices of those who are impacted by President Trump and Republican Senators' shutdown.

Lawmakers struggled to find a way out of the shutdown Wednesday. "Welcome to life in the New Democratic Majority". Mr. Trump said Pelosi could still use commercial transportation for the trip.

The legislation was a moment of rare bipartisan agreement between Trump and the new Democratic-controlled House of Representatives, which has refused to comply with the White House's request for more than $5 billion in funding for construction of a border wall in any bill to reopen the government.

There was no immediate reaction from the White House.

Those arriving Wednesday for the midday meeting in the Situation Room included five freshmen, several of whom did not back Pelosi as speaker.

The White House has now invited another subset of the House, a group of bipartisan congressmen called the Problem Solvers Caucus, to a meeting with Mr Trump on Wednesday afternoon.

"And so if government workers don't go to work, then they reduce their output calculations accordingly".

Despite there having been a significant decrease in the number of migrants apprehended at the U.S. -Mexico border in the past 18 years, Pence defended his use of the term "humanitarian crisis" by pointing out that last month the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency "apprehended almost 40 percent more unaccompanied children and groups claiming to be families than in May 2014, which President Barack Obama described as a "humanitarian crisis" at the time".

The U.S. Department of Agriculture is temporarily reopening an agency that provides resources to farmers and ranchers.

The president, on a conference call with supporters, showed no signs of backing down. Dozens of federal employees and their representatives as well as activists gathered here on Tuesday to protest against the ongoing partial government shutdown, which is now the longest government closure in USA history. But if the shutdown extends into March funding will become uncertain.

The White House hasn't immediately responded to a request for comment about Pelosi's request, which she made in a letter to the president.

Officials say the rate of airport screeners missing work during the partial government shutdown has stabilized just days before the upcoming Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend, which is likely to mean bigger airport crowds.

Democratic leaders did not ask the Secret Service if the agency would be able to secure the State of the Union event before sending the letter, according to a senior Homeland Security official, who was not authorized to speak publicly. The email was sent on behalf of the President. "I'd like to see us have a breakthrough here".

Trump could delay the address or deliver it in writing as was the norm before the 20th century.
