McMorris Rodgers: Answering Crisis with Leadership

WASHINGTON, DC – Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) released the following statement today after acting to address the border crisis.  

“We face a grave humanitarian and national security crisis at the border – and Americans in Eastern Washington and across this country are asking for leadership. They’re asking for solutions.  And that’s what our legislation does: it provides a serious solution to a serious problem. Our plan reallocates $694 million to secure the border, provide emergency care, and prevent future arrivals.  This will ensure that children are reunited with families in their home countries. Our solution addresses the problem humanely, effectively, and expeditiously. The crisis at the border demands our attention. It demands our action. And it demands our immediate and unwavering leadership.”
