American Democrats Start Fight Against Trump's Wall, Pass Bills To Re-Open Government

The United States House Democrats passed a plan to re-open the government and ignore President Donald Trump's calls to fund the border wall that he promised during the campaigns. The government had been forced to a partial shutdown after Trump's fund demands were rejected.

The votes, that are clearly along party lines, folllowed President Trump's announcement that he would continue to fight for his campaign promise that saw him get to the White House. The border wall was to built along the Mexican border to stop immigrants, mainly from South America from gaining access into the country.

The Democrats plan to fight the shutdown as bipartisan talks continue. The bill to temporarily fund the Department of Homeland Security to February 8 was approved, 239-192.

Another bill, that would help fund the the Agriculture, Interior and other departments through Sept. 30 was approved by the Democrats  241-190.
