What exactly this shutdown means, agency by agency

The fight over a border wall, the fate of almost 800,000 DACA recipients, and the wrangling over the funding of an insurance program for children could force a US government shutdown after midnight on Friday if Congress does not pass legislation that would keep the government up and running.

Why is there a shutdown again?

Here's a rundown of what will happen if the government remains shut down. However, the decision to go to Davos is now being assessed "day to day" the White House budget director said on Saturday. The biggest dispute, though not the only one, is how to address the status of roughly 700,000 undocumented immigrants granted legal protection and work permits under President Obama that the Trump administration plans to revoke.

The House of Representatives voted 230-197 on Thursday night to extend funding until next month, but the measure failed to pass the Senate.

Despite last minute bipartisan meetings, the bill to fund the government until 16 February did not receive the required 60 votes.

What happens now they didn't find a deal?

Basically, if someone could die, or if the economy could face irreparable harm if a federal worker is off the job, they aren't going to be furloughed. Without funding, the law requires them to be furloughed without pay.

The last shutdown in October 2013 lasted more than two weeks, and led to more than 800,000 federal employees being furloughed.

CHILDREN: Six Head Start education programs in Alabama, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi and SC serving about 6,300 children shut for nine days in 2013, the OMB said.

Deep into a tough flu season, the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will be unable to support the government's annual seasonal flu program. Congress will still go to work to try and reach a solution, but much of their staff will be staying home.

It looks like the lights will stay on, trains will still run and mail will still be delivered despite the shutdown. But during those shutdowns, no government employees were sent home without pay, known as being on furlough.

LA Times Newsroom Bid to Unionize Passed by Wide Margin
The vote to unionize received 85 percent approval from reporters at the LA Times , who went to the polls earlier this month. He called NPR's CEO in an attempt to stop the story, telling him the claims were all "lies".

He said further instructions would come if the shutdown lasts for more than a week.

The Trump administration does not plan to barricade open-air monuments this time, and the Smithsonian has said its museums could remain open for the first weekend.

Government agencies would shut down because of the lack of a bill that funds services those agencies provide.

Who'll be guarding the country?

Nov 20-23 1981: The first major government shutdown and the first for the Ronald Reagan government. After that time, the judiciary would have to furlough employees not considered essential.

During the 2013 shutdown, the Medicare health insurance program for the elderly continued largely without disruption. Secretary of Defense James Mattis warned in an appearance at Johns Hopkins University on Friday that training exercises for reservists and maintenance of weapons systems would be delayed and there would be "a huge morale impact" across the board.

Special counsel Robert Meuller's team would continue to operate, a Justice Department spokesperson told CNN. The New York Times put back-payments as result of the shutdown at an estimated $65 million.

Essential services, such as Social Security, air traffic control and the Transportation Security Administration, will continue to be funded even if some employees of those agencies are not. It's possible customer service and various administrative duties might be impacted by furloughed employees, however.
