Rep. Duffy supports Trump's national emergency declaration
MERRILL - President Trump issued the first veto of his presidency last Friday. He rejected a resolution that would have blocked funding for a border wall without congressional approval.

Wisconsin 7th district representative Sean Duffy said Republicans and Democrats agree on about 95% of immigration reform. The wall is where they differ, but Duffy said immigration reform cannot happen without border security.

"To say we're going to do [immigration reform] with an open border I think is insane, stupid, and will never work," said Duffy.


Rep. Duffy held three town halls across Northcentral Wisconsin Thursday. He said after the United States border is secure, Congress will be able to move forward on improving the legal migration process.
