In the United States at midnight on January 20, when Moscow was already 8 in the morning, was partially suspended the work of government agencies.

The main dispute occurred due to the fact that the Democrats in the Senate demanded to take measures for the protection of children of undocumented migrants from deportation, as the administration trump insists on these measures.

Recall that the shutdown or a government shutdown has happened in the history of the United States, for example, in 1995, and then in 2013 under President Barack Obama. Then state institutions were not working 16 days. Then the House of Representatives, controlled by Republicans, entered into a dispute with the Senate, where most Democrats about health care reform proposed by Obama. Republicans rests on the fact that reform will require a huge cash infusion, and government debt already exceeds GDP. Then more than two weeks has not worked all national parks and Federal museums in the country.
