Time to End the U.S. Federal Government Shutdown

The welfare of the employees of the Federal Government of the United States (US), without any doubt, supersedes any and all chauvinistic political ramblings and promises by any individual or party. 

Therefore, it is time for the Donald Trump administration to remove the unreasonable funding for and the determinant to a border wall with Mexico, so as to allow for the prompt and immediate reopening of the full function of the Federal government and the paying of all employees.

Unlike some vast asset holdings of many members of the Trump administration, most Federal employees - with children, with mortgages, with dependent care, with car loans and with unstocked refrigerators, do rely on the timely presentation of paychecks every month. They must be paid. 

The livelihoods of Federal employees can no longer be held for ransom nor bargained with in respect to any border wall with Mexico. Federal workers, like all American employees, deserve more respect than to have their fates rest upon President Trump and his desire for a wall along the Mexican border. 

America's history of the echo of President Ronald Reagan to Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev to "Tear down this wall", should be answered in kind today with "open our government, feed our workers."
