House Democrats on Thursday night voted for a spending package designed to end the federal government shutdown, but rejected the president's demand for additional money for border security, according to published reports.

The House voted 241-190 on Thursday night for a deal that includes several spending bills designed to fund most of the federal government through September.

The House voted earlier on Thursday for a stopgap spending bill for the Department of Homeland Security. That bill, without any new wall funding, passed by 239-192, a report from CNN noted.

A report in the online edition of the Wall Street Journal said that the legislation is expected to be stalled in the Senate, and lawmakers indicated that the partial shutdown is likely to drag on, as neither Democrats nor President Trump are ready to back down.

Trump and congressional leaders were expected to meet again Friday to resume discussions. The president has already said he would veto the House Democratic plan.
