Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Today, Congressman Scott Tipton issued the following statement in reaction to President Trump’s announcement to temporarily end the partial government shutdown:

“It’s good news that federal workers will be paid, and that the government will be able to fully provide the services Americans expect and deserve. It remains to be seen, however, what will be accomplished on border security going forward. The President has made a good-faith effort to work out a solution, and now Speaker Pelosi and Senator Schumer need to come to the table and work with him on a plan to address the challenges facing America’s border security. This critical issue must be addressed, or there will likely be another stalemate in a few weeks.”
