By January 22, 2018 Press Releases No Comments


WASHINGTON – Congressman Blake Farenthold (R-Texas) voted to reopen the federal government Monday.

“Senate Democrats, led by Chuck Schumer, unnecessarily shut down the government Friday because they put the interests of illegal aliens over our servicemembers and children. I am glad we were able to work on a compromise to reopen the federal government,” said Congressman Farenthold.

The legislation reopening the government passed the House 266 – 150, after finally clearing the Senate about an hour earlier.
