FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Chairman Thompson Statement on the Trump Shutdown’s Homeland Security Impact

Today marks the second missed paycheck for 800,000 Feds
January 25, 2019 (WASHINGTON) – Today, Rep. Bennie G. Thompson (D-MS), Chairman of the Committee on Homeland Security, released the below statement on the Trump Shutdown and its continued negative impact on our frontline homeland security personnel who are charged with keeping the nation safe and secure.  Yesterday, Chairman Thompson hosted a Congressional Panel discussion featuring former Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson on the effects of the Trump Shutdown on the Department of Homeland Security.  Today marks the second paycheck missed for the DHS workforce, including approximately 800,000 federal employees.

“Now into its second month, the effects of the Trump Shutdown are becoming more worrisome for the safety of the nation by the day.  It has become clear from hearing from those on the frontlines that even if the shutdown ended today, we will be dealing with the consequences of it for months – or even years – to come. Quite simply, the shutdown is undermining the Department of Homeland Security’s ability to secure the homeland and protect the American people.”

“I have no doubts about the dedication of the public servants that protect our skies, waterways, and borders.  However, I continue to be worried that not having a paycheck – and not knowing when the next one will come – will serve as an altogether avoidable distraction to those whose jobs require laser focus on keeping our homeland secure.”

“Our homeland security personnel have been showing remarkable strength during this uncertain time, but I am afraid even the slightest additional stressor could call the resilience of our system into doubt. Donald Trump’s running a government like this defies logic and common sense.”

All are Essential. January 2019.

Essential during Shutdown?

From a minor crisis, to worst-case scenario.
All are essential. All staff and programs that support individuals and communities.
From the housekeeping cleaners, maintenance staff, and the lowest paid worker TO the executive are essential,
From programs to feed the homeless, and unemployed TO the programs that restore communities during times of disasters both man-made and natural.
True inclusion & diversity involve all at the table.
