Gallego on Vote to Fund the Department of Homeland Security
Washington, DC – Congressman Ruben Gallego released the following statement about today’s vote to fund the Department of Homeland Security:
"I hope Republicans learned their lesson, we should never play games with our national security or with the well-being of our country. There is too much at risk and the American people deserve better.
“I commend Republicans for finally joining us in passing a clean DHS funding bill that provides appropriate level of funding and certainty for DHS employees to do their job and keep the American people safe.
“Rather than keeping government funding hostage over the President’s executive actions, Republicans should work with us to pass immigration reform that is good for our economy and keeps families together. That is the ultimate long term solution for how to deal with an immigration system that badly needs to be overhauled.”
