Neither side has shown any inclination to compromise and instead looked to penalize the other for not caving. But Schumer, D-N.Y., and Sen. Democrats have called a wall costly, ineffective and immoral.

Tlaib, a Palestinian-American who recently made headlines for declaring on video Democrats are "gonna impeach the mother****er", referring to President Trump, is one of several radical leftists who ran for election in 2018 with anti-Israel or anti-Semitic sentiments.

The impacts of the shutdown were widening after a weekend of fitful staff-level negotiations at the White House yielded no result.

The bill is scheduled to be taken up at 3 EST, at which time the proceedings can be viewed here.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) failed in his first significant legislative test of 2019, on January 8, coming up three votes short of the 60 needed to take up debate on Middle East policy proposals instead of Democratic bills to end the government shutdown.

"The notion that he's going to walk away with nothing is not real", said Senator Marco Rubio of Florida.

"I'm very unapologetically me", Tlaib said.

The House will also vote this week on three other individual appropriations bills: Interior-Environment, Transportation-Housing and Urban Development, and Agriculture. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., dismissed Democrats Tuesday, blaming them for refusing to budge on the wall.

"Anti-Semitism can't be tolerated in any way, shape, or form", he said. We offered every senator an opportunity to clarify his or her personal position on BDS.

"When the government is shut down, there are consequences, and people are starting to feel those consequences", Murkowski said she told the president. We have provided a number of ways to do that. Only after those events will committees begin reporting out legislation for floor action.

Each day this week, the House will vote on bills to fund shuttered parts of the government.

Senate Republicans' first bill of the new Congress aims to insert the legislative branch into President Donald Trump's Middle East policy. That bill passed through a Republican House, cleared a Senate that Democrats controlled by just two votes and was signed by a Republican president. "And it simply builds on earlier legislation that Senate Democrats like then-Senator Obama, then-Senator Clinton, and Senator Schumer previously supported with enthusiasm". Those tactics were first proposed by Sen.

"The Senate should vote on nothing else until we vote to reopen the government. Period", Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., tweeted on Monday.

Democrats voting for the cloture motion included Sens.

"I've worked closely with you on BDS, @MarcoRubio, and disagree with you here", said Cardin, who in the last Congress authored a bill that would set federal fines for commercial entities that comply with BDS. Jeff Merkley, D-Ore., and Thomas Carper, D-Del. Bernie Sanders, an independent, also support's the effort. "We've never had a better ally", the Democratic lawmaker stated.

"They forgot what country they represent", Tlaib, a Palestinian American, wrote on Twitter Sunday.

Trump bolted after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told him that more wall funding just wasn't in the cards.
