Sen. Rick Scott Applauds President Trump Proposal that Opens Government, Secures Border and Protects DREAMers

January 19, 2019

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senator Rick Scott made the following statement after President Trump announced his proposal to end the government shutdown. President Trump’s compromise mirrors a proposal from Senator Scott in an Op-Ed last year. 

“I applaud President Trump for proposing a compromise that re-opens government, protects our borders and takes care of those brought to this country illegally through no fault of their own. Children should never be punished for the actions of their parents, and I’ve always supported protections for our DREAMers. Now it’s time for Democrats to decide if they want to negotiate in good faith and accept a compromise that secures our borders and protects DREAMers or if they want to continue playing politics. I hope they choose the former so we can get to work fixing problems for the American people.”
