Rubio Statement On POTUS Proposal To End Government Shutdown

Jan 19, 2019 | Comunicados de Prensa

Miami, FL – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) today issued the following statement after President Donald Trump announced his proposal to pair his $5.7 billion border security request with protections for DACA recipients and legislation to extend the legal status of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) holders:
“The way to end this shutdown is for both sides to make mutual concessions in order to reach an agreement. The President has made a very reasonable offer to extend DACA and TPS protections in exchange for the border security measures he supports. I hope that instead of choosing the road of endless obstruction, Democrats will decide to work with him to reach an agreement and end the shutdown.”
