This. I think it's immoral and reprehensible to hold federal workers hostage over a campaign promise that couldn't get passed with a Republican controlled congress and president. We do have a crises coming and that is not paying TSA agents, air traffic controllers, and federal detention employees. To say that these employees should pick another job is not a very good argument for the government hiring dedicated employees. It's a proven fact that more terrorists come in through airports and the northern border.The stupid thing about the shutdown is it being over a policy that is widely opposed.
They couldn't get it passed with full Republican control so pointless to think it will happen with Democrats controlling the House.
Pass a budget and then debate the wall and other policy issues.
