Congress goes into recess, government will go into another shutdown

The White House had already begun to instruct government agencies to prepare for potential shutdown, local media reported.

Members of the House voted early Friday morning, ending an overnight shutdown of the government.

Ryan said on Thursday he would bring an immigration bill to the floor that the president would sign.

The government will be funded through March 23. The previous one had occurred in 2013 and lasted 16 days.

While both the president and his Republican spokesmen have blamed the Democratic Party for the delay and obstructionism in reaching a pact, it was the representative Rand Paul (R-Ky.) the one who paralyzed the vote after refusing to take any decision with respect to the measure before the cut-off time for closure, which many have considered "a shame" for a Congress controlled by Republicans.

Why some Democrats are not happy?

While House minority leader Nancy Pelosi stole the headlines on Wednesday when she delivered a record-breaking eight-hour speech on the House floor denouncing the Bill and calling for a deal on immigration, it was Republicans' turn on Thursday.

The California congresswoman has called for the bill to include protection against deportation for "dreamers", young immigrants who entered the United States with their parents illegally as children.

"I voted against this legislation because Dreamers are not included in it", said Sen.

While conservatives, such as those in the far-right House Freedom Caucus, embraced a tax overhaul previous year that will expand the nation's debt, they adamantly oppose domestic spending increases that the budget deal allows.
