UPDATE: Shutdown Over, Trump Signs The Bill



UPDATE: President Trump signed the spending bill Thursday morning, ending the government shutdown after a couple of hours. The bill still does not address the DREAMer issue, prompting a No vote from Nancy Pelosi.

A government shutdown is now considered inevitable in Washington shortly after 11 PM Thursday.

The New York Times called the government shutdown at 11:10 PM.

The government shutdown begins at midnight, due to the efforts of Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul, whose protest against runaway spending is having a powerful impact.
