Rep. Rogers backs Trump emergency declaration to secure border

SHARE NOW

SYLACAUGA, Ala. – President Trump today announced an emergency declaration that will secure the southern border. He said he is signing a national emergency to unlock billions more dollars in federal funds that Congress refused to authorize for the construction of a border wall..

House Homeland Security Committee Ranking Member Mike Rogers (R-Ala.) today released a statement following President Trump’s announcement that he is declaring a national emergency to secure the southwest border:

“It’s the president’s job to keep America safe from threats to our nation. I stand by President Trump’s decision to use his executive authority to secure our southwest border. An emergency declaration will give him the resources Democrats in Congress failed to provide to address the cartel activity, influx of drugs, and illegal immigration flows that have created a humanitarian and national security crisis at our border. I’m disappointed that Democrats failed to take this crisis seriously, forcing the president to resort to these measures.”

Rogers voted against the government funding bill last night.
