Trump Government Shutdown Closes Texas Airport Terminal

Airline passengers traveling on United Airlines, Air Canada, Mesa Airlines, ANA, ExpressJet, and Air New Zealand out of Houston’s George Bush Airport are among the first casualties in President Trump’s government shutdown after Transportation Safety Agency (TSA) officers didn’t show up Monday morning.

Airport officials had to close down terminal B and get Houston police officers to divert passengers to enter into the other terminals causing the Mayor of Houston, Sylvester Turner, to issue a statement urging passengers to get to the airport two hours early.

The Republican controlled U.S. House and U.S. Senate had sent the president a bill to continue government spending but the president vetoed the bill after right-wing radio and television entertainers urged the president not to give up on funding for a border wall.

The president went before the country last week to warn of an impending emergency along our borders but evidence indicates that most terrorist threats come through our ports of entry, including airports, which now face increased security pressure as passengers are more vulnerable to weapons, bombs, and other security threats with TSA agents not showing up for work because they are not being paid.
