Mission, Texas - 10 January 2019
1. SOUNDBITE (English) Sen. John Cornyn, (R) Texas:
"We got elected to govern. We didn't get elected to preside over a shutdown. To me that's a failure of government. And unfortunately Washington, DC is so polarized now, people are so fixated on who is going to win and who is going to lose this argument that they forget the people that get hurt. On the 11th, people are going to start missing their paycheck. I think about 800,000 federal workers and contractors. I think that might be the kind of impetus that we need to get people off of dead center and talking to each other."
2. SOUNDBITE (English) Sen. Ted Cruz, (R) Texas:
"I think the president in heartbeat would take a deal that invested more in infrastructure, ports of entry, to facilitate trade and treaties. To stop narcotics if it was done if it was done with further investment for physical barriers and securing the border. I think that's a deal the president would take in a heartbeat.
But for that deal to happen, Congressional Democrats have to be willing to compromise. They can't just demand their way or the highway."
Republican Senator Ted Cruz of Texas says he believes President Trump would be willing to accept a deal to end the partial federal government shutdown and enhance security at border ports of entry, as long as a border wall is funded, too. Cruz and Republican Senator John Cornyn joined President Trump at the U.S.-Mexico border on Thursday.
Cornyn called the shutdown "a failure of government." He said the prospect of hundreds of thousands of government workers and contractors missing their paychecks could spur some to compromise.
