Thompson Calls for Solutions, Not Slogans

Jan 26, 2017
Press Release

Washington - Today the President signed an executive action to force American taxpayers to pay for a wall along the Mexico border. Rep. Mike Thompson (CA-05) released the following statement:

"The time for campaign slogans has past; the time for comprehensive solutions is upon us," said Thompson. "The President's border wall is a profound waste of taxpayer money, and it does not address the real problems in our immigration system. Democrats and Republicans have come up with bipartisan solutions before. I hope we can do so again, rather than waste time and money on fulfilling a misguided campaign slogan."

Experts have estimated that the President's border wall would cost American taxpayers between $8 - 25 billion.
