(Arlington, VA) – Last night the president and Congressional leaders addressed the nation regarding border security and the ongoing partial shutdown of the federal government.
Daniel Garza, President of The LIBRE Initiative, released the following statement:
“The American people are counting on their leaders to find ways to overcome differences to address important national priorities. But while we once again heard our political leaders outline their disagreements, it is clear that we are no closer to reaching a solution. This is yet another missed opportunity, poisoned by politics. There is a clear path out of this. Lawmakers should be working toward a compromise that provides certainty to the Dreamers and enhanced border funding. It’s time for them to step up and lead.”
