US Capitol

Parts of the Federal Government will be closed due to an impasse between President Trump and Congress. According to The Washington Post, Congress is lingering in a “stalemate with President Trump over border wall funding.” The President is reportedly seeking approval of $5 billion for the funding.

The Government shutdown began on Saturday at midnight. It has yet to be determined how long the shut down will last.

During the shutdown, not only will approximately 400,000 federal employees go without pay, but some governmental administrative and social services will be halted or abbreviated.

Housing and Urban Development (HUD) will reportedly stop processing requests for housing vouchers until the shutdown ends.
