Just before christmas, went literally a number of federal agencies and to agencies out of money and had to send home their employees without pay.
In all, 350 000 government employees are sent home without pay, and 450 000 employees working unpaid.
the Reason? U.s. president Donald Trump's demands for $ 5 billion - about 43,9 billion - in grants to its famous grensemur against Mexico.800 000 americans shut out from their jobs. Trump refuses to give in, Refused to sign
Mexico will known not to pay for it, but the will nor the democrats in Congress. Trump wanted the money granted in a budsjettavtale, which would fund the parts of the state apparatus who are not now funded.
When the grant was not in agreement that politicians, both republicans and democrats, in the Senate agreed last week, refused the president to sign the budsjettavtalen.
And because the president has a veto, sections of the state apparatus shut down. Friday has the Us "shutdown" lasted for six days.Walls and fences
Most likely will the state apparatus be closed over the new year period, enter both the Washington Post and the New York Times.christmas EVE: On christmas eve helped Melania and Donald Trump to answer the phones from the children about where santa claus was.

the Distance between the parties, The white house and democrats in Congress, seems to be too large that they come to speedy agreement. Thursday sent Congress its members home again, and was told that they are not expected to have a vote on a proposal this week.
However, consensus may lie in how one defines a wall, writes the New York Times.
Along parts of the u.s.-mexican border, it is already physical barriers between the Trumps the united STATES and the neighbors in the south. It has the democrats voted yes to the former, and they may be inclined to vote yes to a further reinforcement of this type of border security.Donald Trump's santa comment to sjuåring turns heads
Therefore, believes the republicans that the democrats are acting hypocritical. Democrats have defended himself with it, after all, is cheaper to build fences than the wall, Trump has promised the american people.
the Democrats also points out that they already have allocated 1.7 billion dollars - about 14,9 billion to border security and in particular the fences. But in the act itself, it is disclosed not whether these funds can be used on a wall, so Donald Trump has described it.Claiming the affected are democrats
Regardless of this owes both parties in budsjettkonflikten on each other to have shut down parts of the american state apparatus. In particular, it has Trump gone vigorously against the democrats.
Thursday, he claimed even that "most of the folks who don't get paid" is the democrats. A statement that the Washington Post writes that the president does not have the factual basis to argue.
He also said Thursday that "many" of the same staff asked him to still keep the parts of the state apparatus closed "until you get the funding for the wall".
"These federal employees will have the wall", said Trump, according to the Washington Post.
It is about 25 per cent of the federal u.s. government that are affected by Trumps "shutdown".
on Tuesday, told Trump that he does not know when the state apparatus can be in the normal thread again.
I can't say when a reopening can occur. I can say that it will not happen until we have a wall or a fence or whatever we should call it, he said to reporters in The white house.Trump will have the wall, but did not get a penny. Now, the united STATES is "closed"
