Walberg Votes for Bipartisan Bill to Address Border Crisis
Washington, D.C.—Congressman Tim Walberg (MI-07) today released the following statement after voting for a bipartisan appropriations bill to provide humanitarian and security relief to the southern border. The bill passed the House by a 305-102 vote and now heads to President Trump’s desk.
“It has been nearly 60 days since President Trump sought emergency funding to provide greater assistance for the influx of migrants arriving at the southern border. After repeatedly blocking this humanitarian aid, and undermining border security at every turn, Speaker Pelosi finally acquiesced to reality. The bipartisan legislation we passed today will go a long way towards meeting the President’s request and providing badly needed relief to border personnel on the front lines of this humanitarian crisis. It’s time to secure our border, fix our broken immigration laws, and solve this urgent crisis.”
Congressman Walberg serves on the House Energy and Commerce Committee and the House Education and Labor Committee as Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on Health, Employment, Labor, and Pensions. For more information on Walberg's work in Congress visit walberg.house.gov.
