Washington, D.C. – Today Representative Dina Titus of Nevada’s First Congressional District released the following statement in response to the ongoing government shutdown:

“Donald Trump said he would be ‘proud’ to shut down the government over a border wall that he promised Mexico would pay for - and in the process he’s preventing thousands of hardworking Nevadans from receiving their paychecks. I’ve worked with my Democratic colleagues to pass legislation in the House that would end this shutdown and get our government up and running again. I hope the President will soon recognize that the American people have had enough of this latest Trump tantrum.”
