Antonio Delgado takes over as Congressperson for New York's 19th Congressional District this week from John Faso, and he was busy this week on Twitter. "It's telling that even the President's outgoing Chief of Staff acknowledged that a border wall is not what's needed for border security -- it's a political talking point and one that should not get in the way of re-opening the government," Delgado wrote. Currently, the U.S. government is shut down after the president pulled out of a deal with Congressional representatives of both parties to get $5 billion to build a southern border wall. "The first task for Congress will be putting aside political games and re-opening the government. I hope that Democrats and Republicans alike can work together to do so," Delgado wrote. He also mentioned that he took some time off during the holiday season to stay at Scribner’s Lodge in Hunter in Greene County.
