Congressman Joe Neguse Responds to President Trump’s Prime-Time Address

Washington D.C.—Congressman Joe Neguse released the following statement after President Trump’s prime-time address this evening:

“President Trump’s address tonight was based on fear, not facts. This administration’s demonization of immigrants must stop. There can be no dispute that the President has manufactured a crisis and is now holding our government hostage—forcing over 800,000 federal workers to go without pay and leaving government agencies unable to plan ahead. Put simply, enough is enough. It’s long past time for Senate Republicans and the President to end this reckless shutdown and re-open the government.”
