WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) released the following statement regarding the government funding compromise and President Donald Trump’s intention to declare a national emergency on immigration:


“I’m disappointed with both the massive, bloated, secretive bill that just passed and with the president’s intention to declare an emergency to build a wall. 

“I, too, want stronger border security, including a wall in some areas. But how we do things matters. Over 1,000 pages dropped in the middle of the night and extraconstitutional executive actions are wrong, no matter which party does them.”
