(1/2) The President outlined the security and humanitarian issues we are facing on our southern border. These are issues that everyone in Congress should care about. It’s time to come together, fund border security and re-open the government.— Rep. Dusty Johnson (@RepJohnson) January 9, 2019

(2/2) That will only happen if there is an effort on both sides to find common ground.— Rep. Dusty Johnson (@RepJohnson) January 9, 2019

Sen. John Thune (R-SD)

Sen. Mike Rounds (R-SD)

Tonight, President Trump did an excellent job reinforcing to the American people why additional resources at our borders are necessary. Negotiators must come to the table to find a compromise that will strengthen border security and reopen government as quickly as possible.— Senator Mike Rounds (@SenatorRounds) January 9, 2019

As the border crisis grows and more Americans are adversely affected by the partial shutdown, time is of essence. It is time to work together to find a solution that has bipartisan support in Congress and adequately addresses the president’s calls for enhanced border security.— Senator Mike Rounds (@SenatorRounds) January 9, 2019
