Murkowski Statement on President’s Proposal to End Government Shutdown and Fund Border Security

Today U.S. Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) issued the following statement after President Trump unveiled a plan to end the current partial government shutdown, fund border security, and address immigration reform.

“It has become clear that negotiations to this point have led us to an impasse. I welcome the President’s decision to put an offer on the table today and will review it in full once details are released. I will encourage my colleagues to do the same,” said Senator Lisa Murkowski. “The issues at our border and impasse over our immigration system weaken America but an indefinite government shutdown is equally damaging to our economy, our security and the well-being of the American people. This needs to end now.”
