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.” ###

Tea Party Patriots Action Urges the U.S. Senate to Confirm The President’s Judicial Nominees

Atlanta, GA – Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement today, urging the U.S. Senate to confirm all of President Trump’s judicial nominees. “President Trump is keeping his promise to nominate exceptionally qualified judges with a record of adhering to the Constitution and following the rule of law. But because Senate Democrats have engaged in an unprecedented campaign of obstruction, there are now more than 160 lower federal court vacancies – more than existed when President Trump first took office. Democrats must put aside their partisan, gridlock politics and join with their Republican colleagues to fill all current vacancies with bipartisan support.”   ###

Tea Party Patriots Action Responds to President Trump’s Oval Office Address

Atlanta, GA – Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin responds to President Trump’s Address on the humanitarian and national security crisis at the Southern Border from the Oval Office. ”Tonight, President Trump addressed the nation and assured the American people that he is determined to keep his promise to secure our southern border and keep our country safe.  It is unfortunate that the nation is faced with a humanitarian and national security crisis of this magnitude -- 'a crisis of the heart and a crisis of the soul’ — but I have been to the border, and I can tell you, it IS a crisis. The Democrats’ response? Denial that there is a crisis at all, refusal to fund proper border security, and demands that the president ignore his responsibilities to secure the country and instead reopen the government. Rather than worry about innocent Americans who are victims of crime caused by illegal immigrants, they are worried about a small segment of the American population that happens to work for the federal government. They are prioritizing government workers’ paychecks over American citizens’ security.  Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi must realize that our country is in danger and must not continue to hinder efforts to address the crisis and give law enforcement officials and agents the tools they need to end this crisis.  It is now time for Americans to call on their Congressmen and Senators and demand they keep their promise to put Americans first and protect our borders.” ###
