Congressman Boyle Responds to President Trump’s Border Wall Address
WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Brendan F. Boyle (PA-02) released the following statement in response to President Trump’s Oval Office address on his effort to build a wall at the southern border.
“Here’s what the President didn’t tell the American people about the proposed border wall in his address: It would be incredibly expensive, most Americans don’t want it, and experts say it wouldn’t even help curb undocumented immigration or address the greatest threats at the border. The President needs to get his facts straight, put aside his erratic demands, stop abusing his office for political gain, and reopen the government immediately. He must stop holding federal employee paychecks and important government services hostage to his obsession with building the wall that Mexico was supposed to pay for.”
Congressman Boyle is the senior House member for Philadelphia and Southeastern Pennsylvania.
