After a three day shutdown, U.S. lawmakers have reached a temporary deal to keep the government open and funded. But they still haven’t reached an agreement on immigration and this continuing resolution only funds the government for about three weeks.
For a brief rundown CGTN’s Nathan King reports from the White House.
To discuss the impact of the U.S. government shutdown:
- Gustau Alegret, US news director for international news channel NTN24
- Harlan Ullman, a senior adviser at the Atlantic Council specializing in national security
- Gordon Gray, director of fiscal policy at the conservative American Action Forum
- Joseph Minarik, senior vice president and director of research at the Committee for Economic Development
By an 81-18 vote, the Senate has advanced a 17-day government funding bill. https://t.co/bs13KtCzVL
