Statement on President Trump’s remarks today:
Today, President Trump again spoke directly to the American people about the national security crisis at our southern border. This President has listened to both sides and is still willing to compromise, and all members of Congress should take the proposal seriously.
However, some Senate Democrats rejected the proposal before even hearing the details. This rejection underscores how desperate they are to keep making an immigration a political issue instead of working toward a real bipartisan solution that could reopen the government.
