Wenstrup Votes for Increased Funding for Border Security
Washington, December 20, 2018
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Brad Wenstrup (OH-02) released the following statement after voting for the Continuing Resolution which included funding for $5.7 billion in new construction to secure our nation’s southern border:
“The situation at the border is a serious problem that demands our immediate attention. Our porous border can allow drugs, cartels, and human traffickers to enter our nation. An unsecure border makes it impossible for us to develop a robust legal immigration system that works for America as it historically has. We cannot expect any legal system to work if we do not have border control and management. Funding for border security is not a political point. This is about keeping deadly drugs out of our communities, protecting American families, and preventing the spread of disease,” said Congressman Brad Wenstrup.
