Thursday, I voted against a Continuing Resolution in the House, a spending bill that temporarily funds certain government agencies affected by the partial government shutdown through Feb. 8.
Continuing Resolutions are short-term fixes that provide no real budget solution and lack spending guidance.
Furthermore, this measure did not include border wall funding. President Trump already stated that he will not sign the legislation, should it reach his desk. We must secure our borders.
I thank the President for his commitment to securing our borders and finding long-term solutions to our nation’s illegal immigration crisis.
