WARWICK, RI – Congressman Jim Langevin issued the following statement after President Trump’s address on the government shutdown:

“I am ready and willing to work with the President and my Congressional colleagues on both sides of the aisle to pass comprehensive immigration reform that strengthens and improves our border security, but before we do so the President must reopen the federal government immediately. It’s time we stop talking past each other and find real solutions to end this shutdown that has caused serious harm to federal workers and the American public.”
