Senator David Perdue On President Trump’s Border Security Proposal

ATLANTA, GA – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) comments on President Trump’s proposal to fund border security and resolve the partial government funding situation:

“President Trump again spoke directly to the American people about the national security crisis at our southern border. The President has listened to both sides and is still willing to compromise. All members of Congress should take this proposal seriously. However, some Senate Democrats' rejection of the proposal before even hearing the details underscores how desperately they want to keep making immigration a political issue rather than working toward a real bipartisan solution that could reopen the government.”


Senator Perdue is the only Fortune 500 CEO in Congress and is serving his first term in the United States Senate, where he represents Georgia on the Armed Services, Banking, Budget, and Agriculture Committees.
