RELEASE:
Statement from Rep. Meadows on President Trump’s Announcement

Washington, D.C. – Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) released the following statement regarding the President’s announcement today on an agreement to a 3 week ‘continuing resolution’ through February 15:

“Throughout this process, President Trump has made numerous offers and repeatedly expressed willingness to engage with Democrats about a compromise—but failure to fund needed physical barriers along our southern border is still not an option. The President is sticking by his commitment to keep our communities safe and has assured me that nothing will deter him from accomplishing that goal. His resolve remains steadfast. Democrats now have yet another opportunity to come to the table and negotiate, where all Americans will be able to judge for themselves whether they’re truly serious about securing our border. If negotiations don’t result in a solution, executive action is still very much under consideration.”
