As federal employees worry about their financial responsibilities, President Donald Trump was planning a 16-day trip to the West Palm Beach area as recently as December 13, 2018. This tone-deaf approach to the issues facing federal workers during the shutdown forced by the Trump administration is emblematic of his entire presidency. This government shutdown was prompted by a refusal by Congress to bow to President Trump’s demand for $5 billion to build a wall between the U.S. and Mexico.
Hostility to Immigrants Spills Over on American Workers
Trump’s insistence on building a wall to prevent Mexican and Central American immigrants from crossing over the border into the U.S. has already cost many federal workers dearly. The U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) has provided many federal employees with letters to send to creditors asking for payment plans or arrangements to prevent financial disaster for those affected by the shutdown.
A History of Government Shutdowns
The Trump administration also presided over a shutdown in January 2018 over disagreements about the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. This highlights the willingness of President Trump to use any means necessary to achieve his anti-immigration agenda. For those threatened by the harsh tactics promoted by the Trump administration and practiced by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), working with a West Palm Beach DACA lawyer can be a good first step toward legal residency and protections against adverse actions by ICE.
