"More than 7,000 Massachusetts people were sent home during the #TrumpShutdown or work without pay," the Massachusetts Democrat wrote in a tweet. "Until @realDonaldTrump reopens the government, I donate my salary to @HIASrefugees, a non-profit organization that helps refugees and strengthens our country."
The closure, which takes place in the second week, is largely attributed to a disagreement over the amount of state funding attributed to President Donald Trump's promised boundary wall. The stalemate has put 380,000 federal employees on leave, while another 420,000 work without pay.
Warren's announcement came after several other congressional Democrats had announced they would donate their salaries during standstill.
Last week, Sen. Mazie Hirono from Hawaii said in a statement that she would donate her income to food banks throughout her state as long as the shutdown continues.
