Press Release

Below please find a statement from Representative Jason Crow following President Trump’s televised speech:

“Let us be clear: this is not a compromise. This is not a path to citizenship. And this is not the immigration reform our country so desperately needs. This is a bad faith offer that comes with a $5.7 billion price tag.

“I welcome a robust discussion on border security and immigration reform. It is a real policy debate of great importance to our country. But I refuse to allow our federal workers to be treated like bargaining chips while risking the safety and economy of Colorado and our country. We must reopen the government and then we can work towards an agreement for smart, effective border security.”
