U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) released a statement Thursday on the government shutdown and wall/border security funding:

“Speaker Pelosi’s refusal to negotiate on funding for a border wall/barrier— even if the government were to be reopened — virtually ends the congressional path to funding for a border wall/barrier. It is time for President Trump to use emergency powers to fund the construction of a border wall/barrier. I hope it works.”
