Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) on Tuesday called for an end to the current government shutdown, breaking with President Trump, who has said the government shouldn’t reopen until Congress approves funding for a wall along the southern border.

Murkowski told reporters that there are parts of the government that can reopen that “don’t have anything to do with border security.”

“The operations of the Department of Interior and the National Park Service or the operations of the IRS and whether or not tax refunds go out don’t have anything to do with border security,” she said.

The article goes on to state the following:

“So let’s bifurcate these issues,” Murkowski continued. “Let’s set them aside. Let’s allow for the operations, these governmental functions in these six other departments, allow for them to continue.”
