US 🇺🇸 government could shut down if funding bill isn't passed

A spending bill to keep the US government operating has passed the House of Representatives. The legislation to release funding for federal agencies until the middle of next month, will now be debated in the Senate.

Government agencies are warning employees of a shutdown later on Friday if the money isn't approved.

The Democrats say they will not support a bill unless there are guarantees that young adult migrants who entered the US illegally will be protected.
