The government careened into a shutdown Saturday morning as Democrats made good on their threat to withhold votes to fund the government until Republicans agree to grant citizenship rights to illegal immigrant “Dreamers.”

The White House labeled Democrats “obstructionist losers” and said talks on immigration won’t start again until the government reopens.

Four Republicans assisted 44 Democrats Democrats in mounting the filibuster, blocking a bill that would have kept the government open four more weeks, which would have bought time for more negotiations.

Senate Minority Leader Charles E.
