St. Paul’s Church remains closed as shutdown continuesPosted: Updated:
St. Paul’s Church, a national historic site, remains closed on Christmas Day and will remain closed for the duration of the government shutdown.
All scheduled holiday programs have been canceled and workers at the church have been forced off the job.
St. Paul’s receives federal funding due to its designation as a national historic site.
Both sides in the fight over President Donald Trump's border wall with Mexico have given a little on the money. What they can't seem to agree on is what it should be spent on.
And until Trump, who wants a wall, and Democrats, who oppose it, can come to an agreement, portions of the U.S. government will stay closed.
Christmas marked the fourth day of the partial U.S. government shutdown with no end in sight.
Most lawmakers fled the capital over the weekend to be with their families. Trump remained at the White House after scrapping plans to spend Christmas at his Florida estate.
