Gianforte Statement on Democrats’ Show Vote on the President’s Emergency Declaration

February 26, 2019
Press Release

Congressman Greg Gianforte released the following statement after the U.S. House of Representatives passed a resolution that would block President Donald Trump’s emergency declaration on the border wall:

“Our country faces a humanitarian and national security crisis on our southern border. I saw it firsthand when I met with ranchers and border patrol agents in Arizona. The president must do what’s needed within his legal authority to secure the border and protect our country. While she could have come to the table earlier to negotiate a solution in good faith, Nancy Pelosi didn’t, and instead, she’s holding show votes and playing political games with border security.”
