Historic record in the United States with the 22nd day of "shutdown". No compromise on the US budget vote could be found between President Donald Trump, who is claiming nearly six billion dollars to build his anti-migrants wall on the border with Mexico, and the Democratic Democrats in Congress, fiercely opposed to the project. In the meantime, 800,000 civil servants are unemployed or working without pay.

In common with these hundreds of thousands of American officials, no one receives wages. Nevertheless, they are divided into two categories: those who stay at home and those who continue to work every day as agents of the US Security and Transport Administration (TSA).

Strategic Sector: Taxes

It is impossible for them to cease their activity, considered essential. It is these agents who manage the arrivals and departures of millions of travelers on the borders, at airports, on a daily basis. Another strategic sector: taxes. The tax administration does not lower the curtain; food security, weather security continues to monitor hurricanes, for example.

Washington residents more concerned

For all the rest, scientific research, certain areas of justice, museums, garbage collection is blocking. But not all Americans suffer the "shutdown" in the same way. We are more concerned if we live in Washington. The operation of the United States capital is entirely dependent on federal funding, which is not necessarily the case in other states.
