Harlem Rep. Espaillat Statement On Decision Temporarily Reopen The Government

January 25, 2019

Today, Harlem Representative Adriano Espaillat released the following statement in response to President Donald Trump’s announcement to temporarily reopen the government.

“During his speech today, Donald Trump once again made the current state of national affairs about himself, while patting himself on the back for a reckless and pointless 35-day government shutdown that cost the U.S. economy billions of dollars and put 800,000 federal workers and their families under unnecessary financial strain,” said Rep. Adriano Espaillat (NY-13). “I am grateful that a deal has been reached to temporarily reopen the government, but I remain adamant in my opposition to support any legislation that includes funding for a border wall. Walls are divisive and send a message to people around the world that they are not welcome here, and that’s a message contrary to who we are as a nation.”


Hoy, el congresista Adriano Espaillat (NY-13) emitió la siguiente declaración en respuesta al anuncio del presidente Donald Trump de reabrir temporalmente el Gobierno.

“Durante su discurso de hoy, Donald Trump una vez más se enfocó en sí mismo, en lugar de enfocarse en el estado actual de los asuntos nacionales, mientras se daba palmaditas en la espalda por un cierre de Gobierno imprudente e inútil de 35 días, que costó miles de millones de dólares a la economía de EE.UU. y puso a 800,000 trabajadores federales y sus familias bajo una presión financiera innecesaria”, dijo el congresista Adriano Espaillat (NY-13). “Estoy agradecido de que se haya alcanzado un acuerdo para reabrir temporalmente el Gobierno, pero me mantengo firme en mi oposición para apoyar cualquier legislación que incluya fondos para un muro fronterizo. Los muros son divisivos y envían el mensaje a las personas de todo el mundo de que no son bienvenidas aquí, y ese es un mensaje contrario a lo que somos como nación”.
