    Morale is "horrible" as law enforcement agents go without pay during shutdown

    Morale is "horrible" as law enforcement agents go without pay during shutdown



    1/10/19
    Washington — Nearly 13,000 FBI agents will not get a paycheck Friday. The FBI Agents Association told the White House and Congress that without it, agents face "financial insecurity" and could lead some to find other work. Ongoing FBI investigations have also been hampered by the partial government shutdown. "As this moves forward, it's only going to get worse," said Thomas O'Connor, president of the FBI Agents Association. "People are nervous, they're upset and they're worried about when is the next paycheck going to come in." There are similar concerns within other federal law enforcement agencies like the Drug Enforcement Agency and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. Sources tell CBS News morale is "horrible." Commanders are having to weigh financial constraints before approving certain sensitive undercover operations. "You know the old adage, 'crime doesn't pay' ... and neither does the federal government. That's not right," O'Connor said. Veteran agents have been through other shutdowns before, but sources said this time is different because the shutdown has dragged out longer. The FBI Agents Association speaks for its members and not the bureau — which isn't commenting Thursday.
    There is a natural bias here by the FBI agents union/association, but the shutdown effects will certainly slow-down/terminate certain investigative facets of the FBI, DEA, ATF, and CBP.

    The Democrats are making our country weaker. They refuse to fund border control. Our country is vulnerable right now.

    All to prevent giving the president “win”.
    Venezuela was a democracy in the 70’s.
    China’s police state is the US democrats on steriods.
    When China controls the Panama Canal, they control half of the USA, too.

    Nah, all to prevent a multi billion dollar monument to Trump's ego, that can be defeated by a $30 ladder or a $10 shovel.

    The Republican and democrat money wants cheap non American labor. Chicago is a sanctuary city with high black unemployment. because Democrats prefer low skill Latino’s doing the work.

    They are a bunch of racist pricks. Thats why the wall is not an emergency.

    Being employed and making a decent paycheck are not the same thing. Working 30 hours per week at MW is being employed full-time.
