Some in Western New York say they're not surprised an agreement was not reached on the budget, causing a government shutdown.
Canisius college political science professor Dr. Kevin Hardwick says there had been plenty of indications of it during the last couple of weeks.
Hardwick says border patrol and DACA are the major sticking points.
"You don't know where this thing is going, it seemed like last week there was a deal in place. Everything was going to go smoothly and then there was a bad meeting when allegedly all those bad words came out,” said Hardwick.
Politicians on both sides of the aisle have expressed their frustration.
New York Senator and Minority Leader Charles Schumer held a press conference on Saturday, putting the blame on President Trump.
“It's next to impossible to strike a deal with the president because he can't stick to the terms. I have found this out, Leader McConnell has found this out, Speaker Ryan has found this out. So here we are, on the first anniversary of the president's inauguration, mired in the ‘Trump Shutdown,’" Schumer (D) said.
In response, Trump tweeted:
"There's something disturbing about the government not being there when we need it in a number of different areas,” said Hardwick.
The impact of a government shutdown is not new to Western New York.
In 2013, over 200 federal employees at the Niagara Falls air force base were on furlough.
The only national park service location in the area was closed in 2013, but this time, the Theodore Roosevelt inaugural site will remain open
The site's foundation now raises nearly two-thirds of the annual operating budget, and in 2017, the budget total was more than $800,000.
