The Trump Shutdown

Jan 20, 2018

Dear Friend,

In light of the federal government shutdown, I wanted to assure you that my offices will remain open and our work for you and the people of New York City will continue. If you need to get in touch with us you can email me here or call the Washington, DC office at 202-225-7944 or the New York office at 212-860-0606 during normal business hours Monday through Friday.

Despite the shutdown, the U.S. Postal Service will remain open and operational, as will critical national security agencies including the Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security, the FBI, and others. However, many other federal agencies and offices will be closed. If you are working with a case worker in my office on any matter, please note there may be delays that are out of our control. State and City government operations are not affected. CNN has a good summary of what federal agencies and operations are affected by the shutdowns here

In the meantime, I continue to work with my colleagues on a responsible compromise that funds the federal government while also dealing with essential priorities such as renewing the Children’s Health Insurance Program, funding Community Health Centers, and finding a permanent solution for DACA and Dreamers.

Thank you for your understanding.
