Washington D.C [USA], Jan 23 (ANI): The United States Senate voted on Monday to reopen the Government, ending a three-day standoff that left federal agencies and thousands of people affected.
McConnell attempted to schedule the vote late on Sunday night that would end the shutdown, but Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer objected to it since the Republicans and Democrats were yet to reach an agreement.
McConnell said that the Congress must stop victimising the American people and get back to work soon.
The House and Senate lawmakers met throughout the day on Sunday to end the government shutdown with both chambers hoping to strike a deal on spending and immigration that would reopen federal agencies soon.
US President Donald Trump also had appealed to the Senate to abolish the filibuster. (ANI)
