It appears Congress and the president have averted another partial government shutdown. On Thursday, both chambers adopted a conference report on a seven-bill spending package to fund the remainder of the government for the rest of fiscal 2019.
On Friday, President Donald Trump addressed the nation to declare a national emergency aimed at securing additional funding for a wall on the southern border.
Washington also paused midweek to celebrate the life of the late Michigan Democratic Rep. John D. Dingell, who died last week.
Here’s the entire week in photos:
