News Release

Office of Representative Debra Haaland (D-NM-01)

Congresswoman Deb Haaland (D-NM-01) released the following statement after President Trump continued to hold federal workers and contractors hostage for his border wall:

“President Trump didn’t come to the table, instead he came up with a false compromise and pulled Dreamers onto the list of people he’s holding hostage for his fantasy. It’s only fair that President Trump signs the bill The House passed on day one to pay federal workers and contractors, then we can discuss border security. When I talk to families in New Mexico, they tell me about the need for quality public education, good paying jobs, and access to quality health care — the wall is not a solution to those concerns.”

Trump is like a child....MY WAY or NOTHING!! Ughhh..... Almost waiting to hear "screw you guys, I'm going home".... OUR Government NEEDS to actually...i dunno...be able to GOVERN in order for a nation that's foundation is DEMOCRACY TO WORK!!! Y'all know this whole wall thing is kinda redundant now RIGHT? It is just a speed bump to those who have NOTHING to lose because life is unbearable ALREADY....hence the WHOLE risky business of leaving in the first place!!! Ok...im done.... Trump gives my headache a damn headache!!!
