Congressman Zeldin Votes With Republicans To Fund The Wall

WASHINGTON - Today, Congressman Lee Zeldin (R, NY-1) issued the following statement after voting in favor of theContinuing Appropriations Act of 2019 (House Amendment to the Senate Amendment to H.R. 695), which includes $5.7 billion for physical border barriers, $7.8 billion in disaster relief and funds the remaining portions of the government until February 8, 2019:

“It should be a bipartisan success to secure our nation’s borders, aid Americans affected by natural disasters and provide certainty and consistency in funding our federal government. It’s time to truly negotiate and compromise for the greater good. The election is over. I urge the Senate to follow suit, avoid a government shutdown and do what’s right for the Americans they’re sworn to represent. With a Republican President, Republican controlled Senate, and Republican controlled House that will be Democrat controlled in January, the idea of the only acceptable solution being 100% of what Democrats are demanding is just not the right answer. Negotiate… and… compromise.”

As proven by the partisan vote in the House,
Democrats chose to shut down the government rather than shut down the border.

Why are we even having this problem? I thought Mexico was going to pay for the wall, not the U.S. taxpayer.
