Congressman Doyle's Reaction to Trump Shutdown Speech

January 9, 2019
Press Release

“President Trump repeated the same fear-mongering talking points and exaggerated, misleading half-truths that he’s pitched over and over again since the beginning of his campaign..Most Americans aren’t buying it.

"The only crisis we’ve got is the one that President Trump has created. The shutdown is doing more to undermine Americans' safety than the situation along the US-Mexico border. 

Everybody knows that our immigration system is broken and ought to be fixed --  and I certainly support smart, effective improvements in our nation’s border security -- but the shutdown should end now. Once we’ve got the government up and running again, and all our government workers are back serving the American people, we can work as long as it takes to find common ground on improving border security.”
