GOP logic: Shut down the government and demand a wall to stop drug trafficking even though smuggling happens at legal ports of entry not the open border and that smuggling will be easier now that border patrol, coast guard and TSA aren't being paid due to the shutdown. Genius!
The TSA administrator confirmed a spike in sick calls is due to officers who can no longer afford to work for free. Screeners protested in Dallas Wednesday morning, while a food bank at the Tampa airp...

TSA acknowledges the obvious: "Many employees are reporting that they are not able to report to work due to financial limitations." Absences are almost double the same time last year. A DHS spokesman had said this was "fake news," for which he was praised by President Trump.

Just blocks from White House a modern day soup kitchen opened for furloughed govt workers & those working w/o pay due to govt shutdown. Airports across the country are open food pantries for TSA/FAA workers. 800,000 govt employees caught in the middle of politics stalemate.

The implications of the partial government shutdown are real and painful. Enough is enough. We need to negotiate a deal and end this shutdown for the sake of the American people. We all win with better border security. https://www. click2houston.com/news/terminal- b-security-checkpoint-at-bush-airport-closed-due-to-shortage-of-tsa-workers?__vfz=medium%3Dsharebar   …

I’m getting on a plane in two days and somebody just got a gun through TSA which I’m more than willing to bet has something to do with the fact that TSA is suffering due to Trump’s hissyfit shutdown. I would LOVE to not have to care about him. Believe me. https:// twitter.com/Itsjoeco/statu s/1084823551549624325   …

NEW: Houston has closed TSA checkpoint due to government shutdown. @realDonaldTrump put your pride and ego away. It’s time to reopen the government and start paying federal employees.

So all TSA agents you see at airports are working for free due to the government shutdown. I made sure to say thanks to the few agents in my lane tonight. They seemed to really appreciate it. I encourage you to do the same if you’re flying in the States.

[email protected] said his shutdown has a “higher purpose than next week's pay.” Tell that to the TSA agents I met in Cleveland, with children to feed and rent due. https://www. cincinnati.com/story/opinion/ 2019/01/09/donald-trump-government-shutdown-betrays-workers-sherrod-brown-column/2525063002/   …
