A partial shutdown of the federal government officially began early Saturday morning after the Senate failed to pass a stopgap spending measure to keep the government operational.
Both Democrats and Republicans sought to deflect blame for the shutdown immediately after the vote in the Senate came up short.
"After weeks of racist and irresponsible rhetoric, our nation is now closed for business to those who need its support most", Stacy said.
"Democrats are far more concerned with Illegal Immigrants than they are with our great Military or Safety at our risky Southern Border". They could have easily made a deal but chose to play Shutdown politics instead. "Can't let that happen!"
With the potential shutdown looming, Mr Trump cancelled his planned weekend trip to Florida where he was due to celebrate the one-year anniversary of his inauguration at his Mar-a-Lago resort. At the time, Trump told "Fox & Friends" that the ultimate blame for a shutdown lies at the top. House members have been put on notice for the day, and told that votes may be called at short notice.

A similar spending plan passed the GOP-controlled House on Thursday.
The president spoke with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., to discuss the next possible steps, while chief of staff John Kelly also worked the phones. Republicans hold 52 seats in the 100-seat chamber, and as a result needed Democratic support to pass the Bill.
Among the Senate Democrats who voted against the continuing resolution was Sen.
Instead, McConnell proposed a three-week version of the short-term spending measure to give negotiators "a reasonable period" to hash out a long-term deal. But if no deal is reached before Monday, hundreds of thousands of federal employees will be furloughed.
The collapse of the deal followed a dramatic day in Washington on Friday.
US President Donald Trump has accused the Democrats of putting politics above the interests of the American people. But it yielded no deal. Democrats have beaten Republicans on every previous shutdown.

"Senate Democrats own the Schumer Shutdown", Sanders said. "Tonight, they put politics above our national security, military families, vulnerable children, and our country's ability to serve all Americans", she said in a statement. We will not negotiate the status of unlawful immigrants while Democrats hold our lawful citizens hostage over their reckless demands.
"President Trump and GOP leaders rejected workable solutions to bring the wheels of government to a grinding halt to pursue a cruel, racist agenda", Hanley said.
But Mr Schumer hit back, pointing out that several Republicans had also voted against the Bill. "I really think the pressure is on the president", he said.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said voters will fault Trump and the GOP.
"A Trump shutdown is a flawless encapsulation of the chaos he was unleashed on our government", he said. Now Republicans point the finger at Democrats and pretend as though they ever cared about any of the children affected in the first place. The Trump administration will do what it can to keep national parks open and accessible, he said.
The 2013 shutdown lasted 16 days and cost the economy an estimated $20 billion, according to an estimate from Moody's Analytics.More news: Bristow Group Inc. (BRS)
