Washington, D.C. — Congressman Michael C. Burgess, M.D. (R-TX) released the following statement on President Trump’s plan to end the government shutdown.

“Thirty-five days into Democrats’ senseless shutdown, President Trump has proven that he values the wellbeing of the American people over petty politics. Government shutdowns are wrong, and hardworking federal employees should be paid for the work they have done serving their fellow Americans. I am committed to reviewing all proposals to enact permanent solutions for the humanitarian and security crisis on our southern border, as well as provide long-term stability for federal employees. In the days to come, Speaker Pelosi must come to the table to deliver on her oath to defend our nation and serve the American people.”
