Short answer – not really. 54,935 of the 60,109 total CBP employees are designated as exempt and will be working (although without pay). These 54,935 CBP workers along with an approximate 33,065 Department of Homeland Security employees comprise about 88,000 workers reporting for work without pay during the shutdown (but will get back pay after the shutdown ends).
Border patrol agents, border operations at the over 400+ ports of entry will continue to function. However, if you read this blog, you may notice I often get my information from the CBP media release page, and since the shutdown, nothing has been posted by CBP.
