The controversial government shutdown vote in both the Senate and House came to pass on Valentine's Day, and both chambers voted overwhelming to pass bills that partially funded President Trump's border wall.

There were only (4) members of the U.S. House of Representatives that did not vote, one of them was Democrat Congressman Ted Deutch.

Deutch, who like most House Democrats, has been very vocal in called on President Trump to end the government shutdown they claim he owns.

But when the time came to vote on a bipartisan bill to end the "Trump shutdown," Deutch failed to cast his vote.

According to his social media platforms, Deutch was in Parkland, Florida for the 1-year anniversary of the tragic school shooting that has changed the the gun violence debate.

On February 13, Deutch, who was flanked on the House floor by the Florida congressional delegation, called for a moment of silence on the House floor for the victims of the school shooting.
