Tester statement following Oval Office address

(U.S. Senate) – Senator Jon Tester released the following statement after the President’s Oval Office address to the nation tonight:

“Keeping Americans safe and protecting the homeland are never-ending tasks and my highest priorities as Montana’s senator. As we face real threats abroad and here at home, Congress must do more to ensure our national security. In the days ahead, I’ll look for partners to pass legislation updating the visa waiver program, preventing suspected terrorists from buying guns, and strengthening our northern and southern borders to prevent folks who would do us harm from entering this country.”
