Hundreds of thousands of Americans were left without wages. The preparation of the White House led to this declaration of a state of emergency to finance the construction of a wall on the border with Mexico, the Associated Press reported on Friday, January 11.
800 thousand civil servants, more than half of whom still perform their work duties, did not receive payments on January 11. It is noted that the partial suspension of the US government (shatdaun), which began on December 22, is nearing becoming the longest in the history of the country.
Earlier, on January 11, it was reported that the administration of US President Donald Trump had begun preliminary work to declare a state of emergency in the country.
Shatdaun occurred due to disagreements in the US Congress over the allocation of funds for the construction of the wall on the Mexican border. In December 2018, the American leader declared that the United States would completely close the southern border, unless funds were allocated to build a wall against migrants. According to him, the obstruction democrats are hindering the financing of the project.
Later, Trump showed the draft wall, the top of which was made in the form of a peak. He complained that the Democrats did not want to see a concrete fence, so it is planned to install an artistically designed structure through which what is happening on the other side will be seen.
