U.S. Rep. Xochitl (ZOH'-cheel) Torres Small of New Mexico is asking for her pay to be withheld until the federal government shutdown ends.

The Democratic freshmen congresswoman posted on Twitter a letter she wrote to the U.S. House of Representatives Office of Payroll and Benefits on Thursday that formally asks for her paycheck to be withheld until the stalemate between President Donald Trump and Congress finishes.

Torres Small also noted that Friday was the first payday federal employees missed because of the shutdown.

Torres Small won a close race in a Republican-leaning southern New Mexico district in November. She's the only member of Congress from New Mexico to publicly announce she wants her pay withheld amid the shutdown.
