Bill Flores Statement Regarding Deal to Reopen Government
 
WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Representative Bill Flores (R-Texas) issued the following statement regarding the deal to reopen the portions of the federal government that were shut down:

"I am pleased that the partial government shutdown has come to an end and that Nancy Pelosi is finally ready to negotiate on border security over the coming days. I am also grateful for the committed federal employees who continued to work without pay and for the patience of those who were furloughed. Now, Congress is tasked, in short order, with bringing forth a solution to address the security and humanitarian crises along our southern border. It is my hope that Congressional Democrats will honor their commitment to work in good faith to provide the resources necessary to secure our border. Looking forward, I further hope that a successful, bipartisan solution on border security will provide Congress with the courage and commitment to develop additional bipartisan actions to deal with other serious immigration issues – beginning with finding solutions for our Dreamer population. I remain committed to working with all parties to advance border security solutions that keep hardworking American families safe and to address our country’s dysfunctional immigration laws."
