The following message from the Attorney General was emailed to Justice Department employees on October 1, 2013.

Dear Colleagues,

As we enter this unnecessary and harmful government shutdown, I have been asked to pass on the attached message to all federal employees from President Obama.

I also want to reiterate that I am grateful for your dedicated service and I am mindful of how difficult this shutdown is on you, the Department's hard-working employees. While I hope that Congress will act to resolve this situation quickly, I will make every effort to keep you informed over the coming days.

As always, I am proud of the work that we do together to keep our nation and the American people safe each day.


Eric H. Holder, Jr.
Attorney General
