Senator Perdue Supports Deal To Reopen Government & Continue Border Security Efforts

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) supports the solution to reopen the government and continue border security efforts: 

“This bipartisan solution will reopen the government while border security negotiations continue. There is still a national security crisis at our southern border, and President Trump is right to address it. I applaud the President for his continued forthright efforts to enter into good faith negotiations with House and Senate Democrats. Many Democrats have supported and voted for border security in the past, but throughout this process they’ve clearly demonstrated they want to keep immigration as a political issue, and not find a real solution. If Democrats refuse to work with us to tackle this national priority over the next few weeks, President Trump will do what is necessary to protect America. Ultimately, this situation only underscores the dysfunction in Washington’s funding process. These conversations should have been completed last year, not four months into the current fiscal year.”
