Casey Statement Following Trump Remarks On Shutdown

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) is releasing a statement following President Trump’s remarks on the shutdown:

“President Trump has finally agreed to end the shutdown he created and that is a victory for federal workers and the American people. It should not have taken 36 days of pain to our Nation’s workers and families for President Trump to accept the same agreement that was on the table when the shutdown began. Now with the government about to reopen, Democrats and Republicans can discuss ways to effectively secure the border instead of building a wall that security experts say won’t work.”
