54,000 CBP agents won't get paid during the shutdown yet they're required to work. At some point they'll just stop showing up to work, like TSA agents are starting to do.

That the shutdown over "border security" could do actual long-term harm to border security is beyond ironic.
CBP agents are *civilians*. They can't be ordered to show up to work under penalty of court-martial.
There are only about 59,000 CBP personnel TOTAL; i.e., over 90% of the agency isn't getting paid right now... but must still show up to work.

How long does anybody think this is realistically sustainable? And Trump's talking about his shutdown going on for "months or years".
