Washington, D.C. – House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) released the following statement on today’s government funding agreement:

“After the longest government shutdown in history and after government workers missed two pay periods, Democrats have finally decided to come to the table and negotiate. Now is the time to put people before politics and solve this problem. This is about fixing a broken status quo that tolerates hundreds of thousands of people entering our country illegally. It is about fixing a broken status quo that tolerates humanitarian suffering and security vulnerabilities. This is about a stronger future for our country. And I look forward to Democrats working with Republicans in good faith and in concert with their past statements for strong borders to solve this problem.”
