FAA halts LaGuardia flights: This map will help you track delays

The strain of a 34-day partial government shutdown is weighing on the nation's air-travel system

That center handles air traffic on its way to and from the NY area and the Mid-Atlantic states. He said safety is being maintained during a period of "minimal impacts" on travel.

He told reporters at the White House Thursday the country has no choice but to build a wall to keep out what he says is a "virtual invasion" by criminals, human traffickers, and drugs.

The White House says President Donald Trump has briefed on airport delays amid the extended partial government shutdown.

Flights departing for LaGuardia on Friday afternoon are delayed by as long as 90 minutes, according to aviation website FlightAware.com.

"The shutdown hadn't affected me until now", the management consultant from Ann Arbor, Michigan, tweeted.

Shetty tried to shrug it off. According to CBC, the FAA is also delaying flights into Newark and Philadelphia.

Rep Ilhan Omar Accuses Trump Of Waging 'Coup' Against Venezuela
Washington has refused to comply, but ordered its non-essential staff to leave the tumultuous country, citing security concerns. Mr Trump has sided with Mr Guaido because the U.S. administration sees Mr Maduro's Government as an "illegitimate regime".

Trump said on Friday he had reached a deal with US lawmakers for three weeks in stop-gap funding that would end the budget stalemate with Democrats.

Rather than pinpointing specific risks, officials issued the more general warning that the lengthy shutdown is pushing an already strained system to its limits.

Union President Paul Rinaldi said Friday that the union does not condone a coordinated action that would reduce the capacity of the nation's airspace. A representative for the National Air Traffic Controllers Association (NATCA), the controllers' union, also did not immediately return a request for comment. "We have warned about what could happen as a result of the prolonged shutdown".

"To my Democratic friends: Money for a barrier is required to get this deal done", he said on the Senate floor, explaining that Trump's spending of the funds would be limited to plans approved by the Department of Homeland Security.

He has asked aides whether Transportation Security Administration and Federal Aviation Administration workers are breaking laws by calling out sick, likening it to the air traffic controllers strike during the Reagan administration.

Southwest Airlines, which flies out of Midway to both LaGuardia and Newark, said the shortage of air traffic control staff was affecting its operations, but the airline did not share data for Chicago. Fees and charges paid by aircraft operators provide a reliable revenue stream; so reliable that larger air traffic control companies like those of Canada and the United Kingdom issue investment-grade revenue bonds to pay for modernizing their technology and facilities-something the FAA can only dream about.

Trump offers temporary protection for undocumented immigrants in exchange for wall
But while Trump cast the move as a " common-sense compromise ", Democrats were quick to dismiss it as a "non-starter ". Mitch McConnell announced that he would bring the legislation to the Senate floor for a vote in the coming week.

The situation is nearly certain to get worse the longer aviation workers go without paychecks. The reason is described as a shortage of flight traffic controllers at the airport.

The president of the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA, Sara Nelson, went a step further, suggesting a "general strike" among members of American labor unions.

An increasing amount of TSA employees are skipping work during the shutdown, citing financial constraints and an inability to work without being paid.

Airlines reacted cautiously to Friday's disruptions, trying to avoid alarming their customers.

Still, that caused a domino effect with flights delayed coming into New York City-area airports from other destinations - including Orlando. That said, it's hard to confirm the exact status of flights, so check with your airline and prepare to wait out delays on the tarmac and on the taxiway.

Trump's 'deal' on wall and dreamers is no bargain
Among them: "security items such as advanced technology, infrastructure investments, and humanitarian assistance". We voted for Trump and got Jeb [Bush]!" But it's drawn nothing but negative reviews from Democrats so far.
