Government to Shut Down: House and Senate Adjourn With No Spending Deal

• The Senate and House have adjourned without reaching a deal. The government will partly shut down after funding expires at midnight.

• Hours before a midnight deadline, White House officials and senators unsuccessfully scrambled to cut a deal to avert a partial government shutdown.

• President Trump, unwilling to drop his demands for funding for a border wall, sought to blame Democrats for a crisis that he had previously said he would proudly own.

The Senate adjourned around 8:10 p.m. without a spending deal, ensuring that for the third time this year, parts of the government would shut down.

Just over an hour before, the House announced it had adjourned. Both chambers are expected to reconvene on Saturday at noon.

Vice President Mike Pence and Jared Kushner, the President’s senior adviser and son-in-law, were among those who had been huddling in negotiations across the Capitol.

Senator Richard C. Shelby of Alabama, the chair of the Senate Appropriations Committee, said that before bringing a bill to the floor, there would need to be assurances that the president would support it.

“We’ve made some serious overtures,” Mr. Shelby said, emerging from a meeting that included Mr. Pence and Mr. Kushner. “We’re not done.”

• Nine departments will close: The Treasury as well as the departments of Agriculture, Homeland Security, Interior, State, Housing and Urban Development, Transportation, Commerce and Justice.

• More than 420,000 people will work without pay, including nearly 54,000 Customs and Border Protection agents and 42,000 Coast Guard employees. As travelers flood the nation’s airports and train stations, 53,000 T.S.A. agents will keep working, as will air traffic controllers and aviation and railroad safety inspectors.

• Another 380,000 workers will be furloughed.

• The status of National Parks will be up in the air. Park staff would be furloughed, although the parks themselves would remain accessible. However, some parks, including the Grand Canyon, are planning to stay open.

• Visa and passport services will continue “as long as there are sufficient fees to support operations,” a department spokesman said, but passport agencies located in government buildings affected by a lapse in appropriations may become “unavailable to the public.”

“Now it’s up to the Democrats as to whether or not we have a shutdown tonight,” Mr. Trump said Friday morning at the White House, moments after meeting with Senate Republicans who have repeatedly told him that there were not enough votes to sustain his position.

“I hope we don’t, but we are totally prepared for a very long shut down,” he said. “This is our only chance that we will ever have, in our opinion.”

It was a striking reversal from his televised declaration during a combative meeting with congressional Democrats a week ago that he relished the prospect of shuttering the government to force them to accept a wall, and would not blame them for the outcome.

Mr. Trump privately groused about having to cancel departure plans for his 16-day trip to Mar-a-Lago, his Florida resort. On Friday, Melania Trump, the first lady had already made plans to leave town with the couple’s son Barron, according to her spokeswoman.

Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, the president’s daughter and son-in-law, both senior advisers who had also planned to leave for Mar-a-Lago, were preparing to stay with Mr. Trump in Washington, an administration official said.

A procedural vote to advance a House-approved stopgap spending bill started around 12:30 p.m. Friday. After hours of keeping the vote open — some senators had to travel back to Washington and some Republicans initially voted against it — the Senate approved the move.Mr. Pence cast the tiebreaking vote.

Senator Susan Collins, Republican of Maine, said that the ongoing spending talks “were a good sign.”

“I see progress in that all sides are now talking, and that is what necessary to get a compromise that will either prevent this ill-conceived shutdown or make it as brief and less harmful as possible,” she said.

In a burst of late-afternoon activity after a day of confusion and inertia in the Senate, Vice President Mike Pence rushed to the Capitol to meet with Senator Chuck Schumer of New York, the Democratic leader, searching for a plan to break an impasse that Mr. Trump has shown little interest in defusing.

“I’m feeling better now than I did an hour ago because that meeting is occurring,” said Senator John Cornyn of Texas, the No. 2 Republican, adding that he was “so happy” about the session, which also included Mick Mulvaney, Mr. Trump’s budget director and incoming chief of staff, and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner. “The fact that that’s happening represents progress.”

Still, the Senate floor was a picture of dysfunction and paralysis as leaders struggled for hours without success to win agreement to begin debating stopgap spending legislation passed Thursday night by the House that would keep the government running through Feb. 8 and provide $5.7 billion to begin construction of the border wall, Mr. Trump’s signature campaign promise.

Though investors learned to deal with past government shutdowns — in January stocks rose the week before the government shutdown — and they’ve disregarded upheaval in the White House for most of the Trump administration, the markets are in a fragile state right now.

There was already a lot weighing on the market on Thursday — trade, economic growth, interest rates — but stocks took a notable turn later on when it became clear Mr. Trump would not agree to sign a spending bill without funding for a border wall.

Those losses continued on Friday as Mr. Trump promised a shutdown that will last a “very long time.” Put it together with disappointment over the Federal Reserves plans to keep raising interest rates, and the market had one of its worst weeks in many years with the S & P 500 down more than 7 percent.

McALLEN, Tex. — Border Patrol agents are prepared to work without getting paid if the government shuts down Friday night, and agents are committed to conducting business as usual no matter what happens, but morale is sinking across the agency.

“It’s nerve-racking,” said Art Del Cueto, Vice President of the National Border Patrol Council, the estimated 18,000-member labor union for the Border Patrol. “It sucks, to be honest.”

Mr. Del Cueto is an agent in the Border Patrol’s so-called Tucson Sector in Arizona. He said the shutdown has dominated conversations among agents.

“It’s definitely on our minds because you’re sitting there thinking, ‘I’ve spent money on Christmas,’ and now you’re saying, ‘I bought this already, maybe I shouldn’t have bought this,’” Mr. Del Cueto said. “It’s the fear of the unknown.”

Also, previously approved time off will no longer be valid if and when the shutdown is in effect, he said.

While Mr. Del Cueto said agents are deeply concerned about the shutdown, he and some others do want money to build a border wall.

“I want that budget for the wall,” he said. “It’s not about how I want to beat Nancy and Chuck or I want President Trump to get his way. It has nothing to do with that. It has to do with securing our borders.”

Mr. Del Cueto continued: “I have skin in the game. I’m not getting paid and I’m defending our borders.”
