Bonamici Statement on Trump Proposal to End Shutdown
WASHINGTON, DC [1/19/19] –Congresswoman Suzanne Bonamici (D-OR) issued the following statement in response to the proposal offered by President Donald J. Trump to end the partial government shutdown, which is in its 29th day.
“This government shutdown has gone on far too long, hurting hundreds of thousands of federal employees, their families, and many more who rely on government services,” said Congresswoman Suzanne Bonamici. “President Trump said he would be ‘proud to shut down the government;’ now he must end it and do so immediately before more people are hurt. My colleagues and I will gladly engage in bipartisan negotiations about how to improve border security and reform our immigration system once the government has been reopened.”
