Prison workers warn of ‘escapes’ as government shutdown continues: ‘We’re the front line keeping MS-13 locked up’Guards in some of America’s most dangerous prisons are warning that escapes and riots could be coming if the partial government shutdown continues to drag on with no end in sight. Many of those deemed “essential” to government work, such as prison officials, are having to work without pay, leaving some worried that gaps could become rife if guards are pushed away by the instability, or call in sick. The shutdown, sparked by the struggle over border wall funding between President Donald Trump and Democrats in congress, is already into its 21st day.
