Maloney Statement on Trump Shutdown

Dec 21, 2018
Press Release

WASHINGTON – Representative Sean Patrick Maloney released the following statement after President Donald Trump shut down roughly a quarter of federal agencies, including: the departments of Homeland Security, Commerce, State, Justice, and the Interior.

“Republicans in the Senate and Democrats in the House were collaborating on bipartisan measures to avoid a shut down. Only the President — by his own admission — wanted this crisis. We can protect the border and keep the government open at the same time. The Trump Tantrum has to stop – we have a job to do for the people we represent. As I have in the past, I will instruct the House administration office to withhold my pay during any government shutdown. Congress should not get paid until it does its job.”
