Statement from U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made this statement on the government shutdown and wall/border security funding.

“Speaker Pelosi’s refusal to negotiate on funding for a border wall/barrier -- even if the government were to be reopened -- virtually ends the congressional path to funding for a border wall/barrier.

“It is time for President Trump to use emergency powers to fund the construction of a border wall/barrier.

“I hope it works.”
