WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Clay Higgins (R-LA) issued the following statement after President Trump’s State of the Union address.
“President Trump delivered an uplifting and powerful vision for American greatness. Our nation is safer, stronger, and more secure thanks to the conservative policies and wins that we have achieved under President Trump’s leadership. In the last two years, we have seen historic economic growth, more jobs, and greater opportunity for all Americans.
“The President called on Democrats to put aside the politics of resistance and obstruction, to work together on the serious challenges facing our nation. We must secure our southern border, modernize our infrastructure, and continue the American economic expansion. The President and Republicans are prepared to seek reasonable compromise, but it takes willing parties on both sides. I am hopeful, prayerful even, that my Democratic colleagues will come to the table and put the interests of the American citizenry, that we have sworn to serve, over those of foreign nationals.”
