Trump Now Faces Legal Trouble Over Gov Shutdown

A new report revealed on Thursday that five federal workers have grown fed up with the Trump administration and are now suing over the ongoing government shutdown.

According to the lawsuit, which was filed Wednesday in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, federal employees are arguing that Trump and Trump administration officials have violated that 13th Amendment, which abolished slavery and involuntary servitude, by shutting down the government for so long.

The lawsuit also claims that the government violated the plaintiffs’ Fifth Amendment rights by limiting their ability to seek alternative employment during the shutdown, which began almost three weeks ago.

According to reports, the plaintiffs, who have not been identified, work for the Departments of Transportation, Agriculture, Homeland Security and Justice.

Four of the individuals have been required to work without pay during the shutdown, while one has been deemed nonessential, according to the lawsuit.

In the lawsuit, the plaintiffs cite Trump’s comments where he claimed that the shutdown could go on “for months or even years” if he doesn’t get his border wall.

While Trump continues to claim that federal employees are happy to work without pay, he is getting sued by those same employees who are fed up with the shutdown and his border wall.
