Who’s affected by a shutdown: By the numbers

Admin Jan 22,2018

Who’s affected by the government shutdown?

    • 700,000 undocumented immigrants who are part of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program will be affected, as there’s currently no fix in place ahead of the March 5 deadline

  • 9 million children who are under the Children’s Health Insurance Program — whose parents usually earn too much to qualify for Medicaid but not enough to afford private health coverage — will have less certainty about the future of their health care
  • About 1.3 million active-duty military will be expected to work potentially without pay. The military is currently paid through February 1.
  • In the 2013 government shutdown, about 850,000 government employees were furloughed each day — and there could be a similar number this time around
  • 1.87 million civilian government workers could be exempt from furlough — including the workers at the Transportation Security Administration and food safety inspectors, border patrol officers and federal prison guards
  • Up to 417 national park sites could be closed, though the Trump administration is going to “try to allow limited access wherever possible,” Interior Department spokeswoman Heather Swift told CNN
  • 19 Smithsonian museums could be closed
