Shutdown in the US: All questions open

Although the Shutdown in the USA is for the time being terminated, is not an end to the political dispute in sight. US President, Trump must now decide whether he will declare a national state of emergency.

In the American Federal authorities begin again, the everyday: All of the 800,000 employees that were affected by the Shutdown, come back to work. The national Park management begins, battered Parks clean up, it is unanswered requests, letters and countless E-Mails waiting. Money, the employees still do not get - it could take several days, until the delayed salary checks are on the way.

Trump had miscalculated

The Shutdown is over, the political dispute, however, goes further. The past few weeks have brought no progress. The also criticized the Republicans, from President Donald Trump, as the Senator Susan Collins. She said on CBS on the question of what have brought on the Shutdown: "I would say - nothing. Shutdowns are never good, they should not be used to achieve a goal, no matter how important the goal is."

said Republican Senator Susan Collins, the Shutdown did nothing.

The prevailing opinion is that US President, Trump had miscalculated. In his Effort to find a wall on the border to Mexico, he had provoked the Shutdown. The former Trump consultant Chris Christie said: "Neither he nor the people around him had a Plan for the end. If one includes the government, you have to have a Plan of how to get out there and be a face and the face of the other. There is no Plan."

Three weeks for a final solution to the

The temporary agreement brings the parties now have three weeks in which to make a final solution. It still goes to the wall, it comes to border security in General. To improve, the Democrats are ready. The leading Democrat Hakeem Jeffries outlined in NBC: "There is a law that is based on facts, when it comes to securing our border. That was our aim from the outset and the principle that a Shutdown is never a negotiating tactic, if there is a difference of opinion."

Modern border crossings, better equipment, drones, and more border police officers. It can be some both sides. The crucial question is whether it can give money for a wall, the election promises of President Trump.

- Calls to Trump the national emergency?

The President himself was skeptical as to whether there is a compromise. In an Interview with the wall street Journal, he spoke of a Chance less than 50-50. He plays more with the idea of a national state of emergency to proclaim and to build the wall. His chief of staff Mick Mulvaney said in the case of Fox, it would be better to achieve the goal by legislation. In the end, the President will secure the border, one way or the other.

trump's chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney said that the end of the shutdown was the end of the negotiations.

in view of the criticism of the President - also and especially from the Right-Conservatives, who accuse him to be caved, said Mulvaney, is that the end of the shutdown is not the end of the negotiations: "This is just another step in the negotiations. We think it was the Right thing for the President to do it. He will be judged by what is in the end - and not on the basis of this week."

The question is, what are the chances he has: Is he risk another Shutdown? Or he will exclaim is really a state of emergency - a path that is itself criticized by many Republicans and, in any case before the court will land.
