Using a shutdown as negotiating leverage is a disgraceful perversion of our political process. We are supposed to negotiate ideas and interests, not take our own citizens hostage in a power struggle. Trump is using human lives as bargaining chits to get his way. Government workers deserve better from the people they serve. Trump's newest proposal is just him throwing more human lives - DACA and TPS holders (who he put at risk) into the pot. The terror tactics must end and the government open immediately without conditions.
