Border Patrol Agents to Work without Paychecks Until Government Reopens

Border Patrol agents, who are considered vital to protecting the safety of Americans, are working throughout the government shutdown.

But they – 52,000 of the 59,000 employees of CBP, might not see a paycheck until the government reopens, the Tucson Weekly reports.

Working without pay is a “slap in the face,” said Shawn Moran, vice president at large of the National Border Patrol Council, the union representing agents.

“We’re all out here serving our country, whether it’s overseas or on the border,” Moran said.

Moran said he worries about some employees because they live paycheck to paycheck while being expected to work.
