Washington, D.C. – House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) released the following statement on Democrats’ unserious proposal to fund the government:

“House Democrats are shortchanging border security and prolonging the shutdown in order to score political points against the President. The appropriations bill Democrats passed is wholly inadequate to secure the border. It will not get approval from the Republican Senate or the President, and Democrats know it.

“I look forward to meeting with Speaker Pelosi and Leader Schumer at the White House tomorrow. They should bring a more serious offer.”
