Rep. Shimkus Not Optimistic About Border Dispute

Congressman John Shimkus says he is not optimistic that the stalemate over funding for a wall along the nation’s southern border will end soon.  And he adds it is unfortunate that around 800-thousand federal workers will not get paid on Friday…

Representative Shimkus was asked during an interview with VermilionCountyFirst.com News whether he thinks the funding deadlock warranted the President asking for national broadcast time Tuesday night to talk about it….

President Donald Trump is asking for $5.7 billion dollars in federal funding to secure the border with Mexico.
