First on CNN: Hundreds of TSA screeners calling out sick @CNN cnn.it/2F9kHFS
This is likely the tip of the iceberg if the shutdown continues. Bills need to be paid: there is no shutdown pause button.
Every day this goes on, the more anxiety there is for Govt workers.
Bc of the shutdown, our transportation systems (and likely other security functions) are not being staffed the way experts intended. @TSA workers doing extra shifts or functions going uncovered is a clarion cry to our enemies to probe security gaps. @NewDay see you shortly
The shutdown, which @POTUS claims is to enhance security, is decreasing it. @CBP @SecretService @ICEgov are working w/o pay, and the longer this goes on, the more pressure they and others will feel to figure out how to make ends meet which could mean missing unpaid USG work.
Take a peek at the @DHSgov org chart - it sheds some light on the kinds of USG workers who are being forced to work without pay, and who may need to make some tough decisions about whether to make up for their lost paycheck by finding work elsewhere dhs.gov/sites/default/…
