The Office of Management and Budget estimated that roughly 850,000 employees were furloughed per day at the peak of the shutdown. The previous shutdown before that was for 21 days that ended on January 6, 1996.

In recent weeks Dreamers and pro-immigration activists have been holding protests and sit-ins in Washington to pressure U.S. Democrats on including the protections in the spending bill.
He was forced to cancel his weekend trip to Florida where he was planning to celebrate his year as president at his Mar-a-Lago resort.
