With the nation well into it's second week of the government shutdown, on Tuesday Piers Morgan shared the story of a Nevada family that's feeling the impact on an entirely personal and immediate level.
Ralph and Joyce Spencer have owned their home for decades, but because it sits on government land that's now been closed due to the shutdown, they've been shut out.
"I'm very frustrated," said Tisha Cook, the Spencer's daughter. "I'm very frustrated for the fact there is a displacement. They have obligations out there as members of the homeowners to help out with different things, and dad feels obligated ... it's just frustrating."
Ralph Spencer is a war veteran currently undergoing cancer treatments in Las Vegas, but the government forced relocation has made things significantly more difficult.
"He's very discouraged by it. Notice he's not on any camera interviews," stated Cook, as her dad's health and frustration rendered him unavailable to appear on "Piers Morgan Live" himself. "He's lost his trust in everything at this point. He doesn't trust anyone. He feels like anything that he's worked and done, everything in his hard-earned life, has been stripped from him."
Watch the clip for the rest of Piers Morgan's interview with Joyce Spencer and Tisha Cook, as it's revealed that the government has granted the couple access to the home during the day, so that they can at least water their flowers. And for the next edition of "Piers Morgan Live," watch CNN every night at 9.
