Concord, NH - NHGOP Chairman Stephen Stepanek released the following statement regarding President Trump's decisive leadership in securing our border:
"President Trump is doing everything he can to fulfill his campaign promise and strengthen our southern border. While Democrats in Congress simply obstructed and resisted critical investments in our border security since his election, President Trump is showing the country that he is getting the job done. Under President Trump’s decisive leadership, our country will be safer and stronger than ever before. The President is utilizing every option he has to protect our nation, prevent future mass migration through the southern border, all while combating a major source of opioids and fentanyl that has plagued our nation and the state of New Hampshire."
"It would have been nice if New Hampshire’s Federal Delegation, Senator Shaheen, Senator Hassan, Congresswoman Kuster, and Congressman Pappas, worked with the President to deliver border protections, but they decided to play politics with our national security instead. The people of New Hampshire will remember how limited their leadership on this issue was, and will replace them with leaders who will put America First."
