Members of the house of representatives of the U.S. Congress from the Democratic party managed to push the adoption of draft laws which will allow to resume the work of the Federal government. It happened on Thursday, January 3 — first day of the new composition of the chamber 116 convocation.

From midnight on 22 December in the U.S. was partially suspended the work of the government for lack of funding — this procedure is fairly regular in the U.S. in recent years, is called the shutdown. This time the stumbling block was the requirement of the President of the United States Donald trump about building a wall on the border with Mexico.

In the midterm elections in November 2018, the Democrats won 40 seats in the House of representatives, receiving a majority there for the first time since 2011. Gaining control of the lower house, they did not hesitate to use it, reports "Interfax". American media emphasized the role of the new speaker of the house of representatives Nancy Pelosi.

In support of the right to end the shutdown of bills voted 241 MPs, with 190 votes against. In particular, the congressmen called for the financing activities of the U.S. Department of homeland security until February 8, 2019. During this time, the Congress wants to find a compromise on the issue of protecting the U.S. border from illegal migration.

The members of the house of representatives approved the allocation of funds to the state Department, ministries of interior, agriculture, Commerce, labor, Treasury, and other agencies until September 30, 2019.

Now the bills have to obtain the approval of the Senate, where more than half of the seats occupied by the Republicans. However, in the White house for a few hours before the vote, said that trump's advisers intend to recommend him to veto the bills if Congress passes them without additional funding to protect the US border and the construction of the wall. Trump demands to allocate for these purposes $ 5.7 billion, while the Democrats agree to spend on protecting the southern borders of the state only $ 1.3 billion.
