Press Release

Washington, DC – Congresswoman Diana DeGette (D-CO) released the following statement after President Trump’s televised Oval Office address to the nation:

“We need to end this shutdown immediately and stop causing real harm to so many hardworking families. Like so many of my Democratic colleagues, I support finding ways to better secure our borders, but let’s have a real conversation about it - one that’s based in evidence instead of fear mongering. Let’s find ways to work together to find real solutions to some of the very real problems facing our country, instead of prolonging this ridiculous stalemate over a ridiculous border wall.”
