Press Release

WASHINGTON - Congressman Tom O'Halleran (AZ-01) released this statement following President Donald Trump's threat to shut down the federal government:

“Border security is an important issue that Congress must address in a bipartisan way, and I am ready to work with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle. However, President Trump’s threat to shut down the government over this issue is wrong. We have already seen the devastating impact a shutdown will have on our rural economies. This will only make life harder for seniors and veterans and prevent us from addressing the needs of the nation.”
