Federal workers rally against shutdown(13 images)

Federal workers rally in protest Thursday at the U.S. Capitol and the White House in the third week of a partial shutdown of the federal government, which has placed them on furlough or to work without pay. Congress and President Donald Trump remain at a budget stalemate as Democrats refuse to provide Trump with the $5.7 billion funding request for a wall along the Mexico border.

Rep. Peter Defazio, D-Ore., speaks at the rally. He later tweeted, "A wall is not impenetrable. You can go under it, over it, around it, & through it. A wall won’t stop drugs or undocumented immigrants from coming into this country. We need smart investment in our nation's border security -- not a barrier doomed to fail."
