Washington D.C.- Congressman Marshall will vote against today’s proposal saying the new deal missed the mark by a large margin.
“This ‘compromise’ is totally unacceptable,” Marshall said. “I’m not sure how this negotiating process went from bad to worse. The President was very clear about needing 5.7 billion to build 230 miles of the wall across the southern border. I cannot support a deal that only funds 55 miles of the wall.”
WASHINGTON D.C.-Last night President Trump stressed the urgent humanitarian crisis at our southern border in his first address to the nation. Yesterday, Congressman Marshall addressed the House floor to echo the need to secure our nation's borders.
