McMorris Rodgers: I Will Continue to Fight for You

WASHINGTON D.C. – Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) issued the following statement today after the House passed the Senate amendment to H.R. 240, the Department of Homeland Security Appropriations Act of 2015. 

“Today I voted to fund the Department of Homeland Security’s lawful operations without providing any funding for the President’s executive overreach on immigration.  As we face rising terrorist threats across the globe, it is imperative we provide long-term certainty to those who defend our national security.  In the weeks leading up to today, I have voted repeatedly to block President Obama’s unilateral action, and I am extremely disappointed by the Senate’s refusal to go to Conference and join us in holding the President accountable.  I sincerely hope the Senate will put solutions above obstruction in the future.  I remain deeply concerned about President Obama’s executive overreach in your lives – from immigration to health care to telecommunications to overregulation – and I will stand beside my colleagues, Republicans and Democrats, in our fight to protect representative government.  As your Member of Congress, I will continue to listen to you, stand up for you, and fight for you.
