ABSTRACT

Impact of the Trump Shutdown   [open pdf - 346KB]

From the Document: "The Trump Shutdown has significantly impacted the federal government's ability to enforce the law, provide civil justice, and promote public health and safety. The shutdown burdens federal law enforcement officers working at the border, the very people responsible for handling the so-called 'crisis' underpinning President Trump's demand for an expensive, ineffective border wall. It has also impacted many other federal law enforcement agencies, undermining federal law enforcement efforts across the board, and making Americans less safe. The shutdown has also begun to affect the federal judiciary's ability to provide civil redress, impaired federal enforcement of civil rights laws, and stymied the federal rulemaking process responsible for writing and implementing public health and safety protections."
