Bakersfield, CA – House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) released the following statement on President Trump’s proposal to secure the border, fix additional aspects of our broken immigration system, and reopen the government:

“President Trump has put forward a serious and reasonable offer to reform parts of our broken immigration system, including stronger and more effective border security. It will also reopen parts of the federal government that are shut down. This proposal represents the truest form of compromise — just as our Founders intended government to work. Each component has bipartisan support and presents a historic opportunity to solve a persistent problem. The moment now turns to Democrat leaders in Washington. The country is watching. Speaker Pelosi and Senator Schumer need to drop the resistance and start working with Republicans to get this done.”
