Federal workers brace for furloughs

U.S. Customs and Border Patrol agents and K-9 security dogs keep watch at a checkpoint station, Friday, Feb. 22, 2013, in Falfurrias, Texas. Government agencies vary widely in how they are dealing with $85 billion in across-the-board budget cuts that went into effect last week. Federal workers could face seven days of furloughs at the Housing and Urban Development Department, but Homeland Security personnel might see twice that number. (AP Photo/Eric Gay)
