Hostage-taking is not governing.

@realDonaldTrump needs to reopen the government, then we can consider responsible solutions to bolster border security.

#Democrats support sensible border security measures.
What we oppose – along with the American people – is the president taking hundreds of thousands of federal employees hostage, forcing many of them to work without pay, putting vital federal programs and services at risk, and inflicting serious, lasting damage to our economy.
I look forward to considering proposals to expand protections for #Dreamers and refugees – once the government is open.

.@realDonaldTrump and @senatemajldr needs to open the government and stop holding Americans hostage.

Once the government is open, I look forward to considering proposals to expand protections for #Dreamers and refugees. #EndTheShutdownNow
On the other hand, give me a full-on #carbonfee that solves global warming and I’ll take a trowel down to the border & build his Big Dumb Wall myself. #EndTheTrumpShutdown
