Murkowski: Stop holding federal workers hostage
Sen. Lisa Murkowski says the debate over a border wall isn't a good reason to continue the government shutdown.
In a Facebook post Wednesday, the senator said it's possible to both address the president's border security priorities and keep the government fully functional.
The Democrat-controlled House of Representatives has passed appropriations bills to fund most of the government, but the bills have stalled in the Republican-led Senate.
President Trump has promised to veto bills that don't include funding for a border wall.
