Negotiations to avert another government shutdown have stalled, leaving lawmakers in the same place they’ve been for months.

The shutdown hasn't shut down D.C. The President is again sequestered in a White House understaffed by a government shutdown and surrounded by patches of week-old snow.

Democratic conferees planned to meet Sunday morning to discuss the next steps, according to a source familiar with the discussions.

The impasse in negotiations adds pressure on party leaders and the White House, who will have to step in if the conference members can't quickly resolve their differences over detention beds and border barrier funding.

The discussion comes after the longest government shutdown in history. President Donald Trump has insisted for money to fund his border wall, demanding for $5.7 billion. But lawmakers remain at an impasse over how much money to provide to fund the border barrier.

Last week, conservative lawmakers said Trump would accept around $2 billion, but Democrats have so far rejected that amount.
