HONOLULU - Wednesday marks day 26 of the partial government shutdown, and there is still no sign of an agreement between President Trump and Congress over  funding for the border wall. 

Tuesday, President Trump invited both Republican and Democratic members of congress to meet with him at the White House, but Democrats turned down the offer.  

The president is requesting more than $5 billion for the border wall, while Democrats will not agree on that amount.

The New York Times released a new report, writing that the Council of Economic Advisers has, 'doubled projections of how much economic growth is being lost each week' due to the shutdown.

"The solution to the problem is for the President of the United States [to] reach an agreement with the Democratic majority in the House, and enough Democrats in the Senate to prevent an agreement. There's no way around that," said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Now, thousands of federal workers are being called back to work, even though they will not get paid -- that includes 1,700 safety inspectors at the FAA. 

Amid concerns, the shutdown is affecting airline safety, and 46,000 IRS workers are now being called back to work without pay -- processing tax returns and pay out refunds through the upcoming tax season.
