2. SOUNDBITE (English) Anja Cangemi, East Bay Coast Guard Spouses Club:
"I think they're all very worried about the situation. This is not something that anybody should be put in the situation to have to handle. So everybody is kind of stressed out. I mean military families deal with stress on a day to day basis especially Coast Guard families. You Know our spouses are often deployed for X amount of time. So this is just an unnecessary added stress to an already you know stressful kind of lifestyle that we lead."

"We live off my husband's income, so we are a one income family. And so it is very tight and stressful. You know we try to put a little money aside just in case in a rainy day fund, but that rainy day fund has come. And so now it's time to really evaluate and start figuring out what bills can be pay the bills can't be paid at this point."Various of Coast Guard members working on small boats

"I will love for them to know that everyone here is very worried. People are worried. They're sad that this is happening to our spouses - that they're out there working very hard and yet this is how we're being treated. I mean I haven't spoken to my husband in two days because he's out there working. And yet here we are not knowing if we're going to have that extra income or not."

"A lot of Coast Guard families do live paycheck to paycheck and a lot of families are starting to kind of get worried. And they're just not sure what they're going to do - and with us doing all the donations they are so thankful but they know that eventually it will come to a point where they're going to have to figure out something else to do. And we're going to be there for them but it's going to be it will be hard, but we will get through it."

U.S. Coast Guard families are becoming increasingly anxious about their finances as the partial government shutdown drags on.
Coast Guard members, who are required to work during the standoff, fear they will miss their first paycheck on Jan. 15.
Unlike other branches of the U.S. military, the Coast Guard is funded by the Department of Homeland Security, which is subject to the partial government shutdown.
In Alameda, Calif., the East Bay Coast Guard Spouses Club has been collecting donations from local residents and businesses to help families cope with the loss of income.
President Donald Trump is edging closer to declaring a national emergency to pay for his long-promised U.S.-Mexico border wall as pressure mounts to end the three-week impasse that has closed parts of the government and deprived hundreds of thousands of workers of their salaries.
Some 800,000 federal employees, more than half still on the job, were due to miss their first paycheck Friday under a stoppage that neared a record for the longest government shutdown.
With the closure's growing impact on the economy, national parks and food inspections, some Republicans are becoming uncomfortable with Trump's demands.
Lawmakers have tried to reassure federal employees that Congress is aware of the financial hardship they are enduring from the partial government shutdown.
By an overwhelming vote, the House has passed a bill requiring that all government workers receive retroactive pay after the partial shutdown ends. The Senate approved the bill unanimously Thursday. The president is expected to sign the legislation.
Trump visited McAllen, Texas, and the Rio Grande on Thursday to highlight what he calls a crisis of drugs and crime along the border. He said that "if for any reason we don't get this going" — an agreement with House Democrats who have refused to approve the $5.7 billion he demands for the wall — "I will declare a national emergency."
