HELENA, Mont. – Montana Republican Party Chairman Don “K” Kaltschmidt issued the following statement after Democrat Jon Tester blocked an amendment to secure the southern border:
“Jon Tester has had two years to secure our Southern border and has not even attempted fix it. Regardless of what he says today, his position has not changed. Tester blocked an amendment to extend Title 42 provisions and has supported Biden’s open border policies since day 1 of his administration,” said Chairman Don “K” Kaltschmidt. “Tester’s meaningless border amendment is nothing but a facade and was designed specifically to try to cover up his efforts to advance his woke leftist agenda. Montanans are tired of his tactics; Tester will continue to serve as Joe Biden’s puppet in the White House until he retires or loses in 2024.”
Following Tester’s vote to block the amendment, he went on to cast his vote of support for the $1.7 trillion bloated government funding package.
