According to a study published last week, salaries of US civil servants since 35 days temporary closure, reached US $ 6 billion.

 

“We hope that by the end of this week, all outstanding payments will be made,” White House chief Mick Mulvaney told in the ‘Face the Nation’ program.

 

About 800,000 federal employees work unpaid over the closure and have not received at least two payments that are currently being managed by government officials.

 

Some lawmakers criticized the partial closure of the federal agency used as a ‘tool’ following policy contradiction plus the rumor that President Donald Trump threatened to do again.

 

The right-hand sides of both parties said the latest closure, the 19th since the mid-1970s, was ineffective as the preceding action was considered to have been extremely detrimental to the longest-running in US history.

 

“Closure is a mutually beneficial counterpart in any negotiations,” Republican Senator Marco Rubio said in ‘Meet the Press’.

 

He also urged congressional leaders to address border security issues during a three-week talk that was launched during the closing agreement last week.
