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.

Sen. Ben Cardin, D-Md., speaks to furloughed government workers and their supporters during a protest. He told the crowd, "I'm happy to stand here with you and my other colleagues in unity to tell President Trump 'Stop holding America hostage with your politics.'"
