Gianforte Statement on Short-Term Deal to End Shutdown

January 25, 2019
Press Release

Congressman Greg Gianforte released the following statement regarding the deal President Trump announced to temporarily reopen the government:

“This short-term deal ends the shutdown and provides Montana’s dedicated federal employees with the paychecks they need. The deal also gives Democrats and Republicans an opportunity to come to the table, negotiate in good faith, and find a long-term solution to fund the government and secure our borders. Based on what I saw when I toured the southern border this week and talked with ranchers and border patrol agents about the challenges they face, we can’t afford to have open borders, and we must make critical investments in substantial, strong physical barriers to secure them.”
