Let’s See Our Current Government Situation

Everyone has probably heard of the government shutdown. Well, this government shutdown is longest one in U.S history. The reason for this shutdown is because President Donald Trump and Democrats are fighting over whether or not to fund a southern border wall. There are many negative effects that harm citizens.

  1. About 800,000 workers across the U.S. will not be getting paid.
  2. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) workers have been calling in sick because they are not getting paid.
  3. National parks face trash everywhere and vandalism, such as the trees getting cut down at Joshua Tree National Park.

Let’s just hope that this will come to an end.
