@SenatorWicker Issues Statement on Potential Government Shutdown

By: Sarah Ulmer - January 19, 2018

U.S. Senator Roger Wicker, R-Miss., today issued the following statement regarding threats of a government shutdown:

“Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer has persuaded his caucus to shut down the government over a totally false pretext. The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program does not expire until March and yet Schumer and his fellow Democrats are refusing to fund the government for four weeks, insisting that DACA must be fixed immediately. A shutdown at this moment would risk the health and security of millions of Americans and is totally nonsensical.  Our fellow citizens are right to be dismayed and mystified, and I continue to hope cooler and wiser heads will prevail in the coming hours.”
