President Trump Makes Powerful Case to Nation for Border Security Wall Funding

Wilsonville, OR – Today, the Oregon Republican Party released this statement following tonight’s Prime Time Oval Office address by President Trump.

PLACEHOLDER IMAGE “Tonight, Oregonians got to see the President making a powerful case for protecting all Americans from the growing crisis at our nation’s southern border, while Democrat Leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer pretended that there is no crisis, and continued to ignore the tragic human toll on its victims,” stated Oregon Republican Chairman Bill Currier.

“President Trump is doing what is necessary to hold Schumer and Pelosi, along with Ron Wyden and Peter DeFazio, accountable for the 700 miles of border wall they promised just a few years ago and failed to produce. The only border security these same leaders now seem to favor is anything that doesn’t really work very well. At the same time, they are welcoming criminals, gang members, drug smugglers, and fake asylum seekers to overwhelm the hardworking border patrol agents who are trying to protect us, even as the humanitarian crisis deepens. It is immoral to let this continue.”

“The experts at the Department of Homeland Security say where walls have been erected along the southern border it has reduced illegal crossings by 90 PERCENT,” added Chairman Currier. “This is the kind of protection that all Americans deserve, but so far Democrat leaders only seem to want to resist for political gain. President Trump is determined to deliver the real, permanent border security the American people can truly count on.”

The Oregon Republican Party is the state’s arm of the Republican National Committee. Its Chairman and officers are dedicated to preserving and advancing Republican principles within the state of Oregon and to improving the lives and livelihoods of Oregon’s working families through economic freedom and equal protection under the law.
