$0 pay stubs, closure signs, workers' tears and other images of the government shutdown

The partial government shutdown entered its 21st day Friday, tying the record for the longest stoppage in U.S. history set in 1995-96.

Some 800,000 federal employees were due to miss their first paycheck Friday as President Trump and Congress remain at odds over funding for his long-promised U.S.-Mexico border wall. More than half of those employees are still required to show up for work, while the rest are on furlough until the shutdown ends.

We assembled some of the most compelling images of the shutdown, which is about to stretch into its fourth week.
