WASHINGTON- U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR) issued the following statement in response to President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address:
“President Trump’s address was a positive, optimistic message to all Americans. It laid out an opportunity to work together on many pressing issues facing our country. I look forward to working with the president and my colleagues to build on policies that have helped create jobs, grow our economy, improve consumer confidence and let hardworking Americans save and plan for the future. We can continue this momentum by rebuilding our infrastructure. I am encouraged by President Trump’s commitment to improve our crumbling roads and bridges and protect our water supply.
“We also have a lot of work ahead of us to protect our homeland and all Americans. We must continue to use every tool available to combat terror which includes maintaining Guantanamo Bay as a detention facility for the world’s most dangerous terrorists. I am pleased President Trump is reversing the Obama administration’s decision to close Gitmo.
“I appreciate the president’s dedication to work with Congress to restore the integrity of our nation’s immigration system and his efforts to end chain migration, the diversity visa lottery and secure the border.”
