FBI Agents Association demands end to shutdown

An advocacy organization representing thousands of current and former FBI agents is calling on President Trump and Congress to fund the Justice Department, saying the partial government shutdown is threatening operations.

The FBI Agents Association on Thursday released a petition describing the shutdown as a matter of national security, urging leaders in Washington to reopen the government.

"On Friday, January 11, 2019, FBI Agents will not be paid due to the partial government shutdown, but we will continue our work protecting our nation," the petition reads. "We urge our elected representatives to fund the Department of Justice ('DOJ') and the FBI because financial security is a matter of national security."

DOJ is one of several federal agencies impacted by the ongoing government shutdown, which entered its 20th day on Thursday. FBI agents are deemed essential and are still working, but they are not being paid as a result of the lapse in appropriations.
