“I strongly support efforts to take further action to increase funding for border security and begin to fix our broken immigration system. That said, I don’t believe shutting down the government is the best course of action. Instead, we should fund border security, end the partial government shutdown, and then continue to fight to get even more border security funding in the long term.”

U.S. Rep. Ken Buck, R-Windsor (via email)

"Illegal immigration and border security are among the greatest challenges facing our country today. I believe we must enforce our nation’s Rule of Law and create a secure border. It is time for both sides to come together to find a solution to reopen the government and secure the necessary funding to protect our nation’s borders in a fiscally responsible manner."
