Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Statement on the Schumer Shutdown
Atlanta, GA — Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement, reacting to Senate Democrats’ decision to block a bill to keep the federal government open.
“When Americans elected Donald Trump president in 2016, they did so in part because of his promises to put America First and to secure our borders. But now Senate Democrats have decided to ignore the will of the American people to force a Schumer Shutdown over their insistence on granting amnesty to illegal immigrants. Democrats would be wise to allow the government to open and save the amnesty demands for a debate over immigration and border security. They should end the Schumer Shutdown and then work with President Trump to secure our borders.”
