US House passes bills to end shutdown, ignoring Trump veto threat

Published 10:56 pm | January 04, 2019

The new US House Democratic majority on Thursday approved two measures that would end a two-week partial government shutdown, but an impasse remains as the bills provide no money for President Donald Trump’s border wall.

Trump has threatened a veto of the legislation that would fund homeland
security operations until February 8 and several other agencies through
September because they do not provide any money for a wall that Trump has
demanded by constructed on the US border with Mexico.

The Republican-run Senate has said it may not even vote on the
legislation.

The new House speaker, veteran Democrat Nancy Pelosi, stood firm shortly before the vote saying no funding for a border wall would be made available.
