WASHINGTON—U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR) released the following statement after voting against the resolution to reject President Donald Trump’s border security emergency declaration.
“A humanitarian and security crisis exists along our southern border that requires immediate action. It is in our national interest to secure the border.I support President Trump’s decision to provide resources necessary to overcome the challenges our Customs and Border Patrol and Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers on the frontlinesface in protecting our border. The president’s use of an authority in existing law will fund the construction of a strong border security system that will be a deterrent to those who seek to illegally enter our country.”
