A temporary government shutdown was all but guaranteed Friday night as Congress struggled to break a stalemate over money for President Donald Trump’s proposed border wall.
Parts of the government will close if Congress cannot pass seven spending bills by midnight Friday.
Lawmakers scrambled through the afternoon and into the early evening to break an impasse over whether to fund the barrier on the U.S.-Mexico border.
But the House adjourned at about 7 p.m. Friday without passing legislation that the Senate supports, and the chamber is not due back until noon Saturday.
Then the Senate adjourned at about 8 p.m. without approving a spending bill that the House backs. Senators are expected back at noon Saturday, as well.
