Arrington Supports Spending Measure With Border Wall Funding

WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman Jodey Arrington (TX19) released the following statement after the House passed a short-term spending bill that included $5.7 billion for border security and $7.8 billion for disaster relief.

“We have a national security crisis in our country, and our Commander-in-Chief has asked for the necessary resources to defend our sovereign borders and protect our citizens and communities,” said Arrington.  

“I am proud to stand with him in his efforts to secure the border and stop illegal immigration by voting to give him the funding he requested for the border wall and other physical barriers.

“There is no country without borders; there is no freedom without security; and the first and most important job of the federal government is to keep the American people safe.”
