Tea Party Patriots Action Responds to President Trump’s Announcement Ending the Partial Government Shutdown


Atlanta, GA – Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin responds to President Trump’s announcement ending the partial government shutdown.

“The President has just put Congress on notice that if Congress cannot find a way to provide appropriate funding for border security — including funding for a wall (permanent, physical barriers — whatever you want to call it, as long as it is a permanent barrier) which Republicans and Democrats have supported in the past — he will invoke his powers under the National Emergencies Act to secure our border. It is time for Members of Congress to end the political games, get over their hatred of the President, and work with President Trump to provide the security our nation deserves.”
