CONGRESSMAN PITTENGER: HOMELAND SECURITY BILL KEEPS AMERICA SAFE, ENSURES WE REMAIN A NATION GOVERNED BY LAWS

 

WASHINGTON – This morning, Congressman Robert Pittenger joined the U.S. House of Representatives in passing the DHS Appropriations Act (H.R. 240), which provides for the largest operational force in the history of the Customs and Border Protection Agency, enhances efforts to combat child exploitation and human trafficking, and increases cybersecurity operations.

Congressman Pittenger helped lead the fight for key amendments which defund President Obama’s controversial and unconstitutional amnesty programs and will help prevent another “border crisis” of unaccompanied minors.

“The Homeland Security appropriations bill supports the needs of the brave men and women who protect us each day and meets the requirements to keep us safe,” explained Congressman Pittenger (NC-09) during House debate.  “The amendments accompanying this legislation ensure we continue to be a nation governed by laws, and prevents any funds from being used to implement the President’s unconstitutional decrees of amnesty.”

The DHS Appropriations Act passed the U.S. House of Representatives by a vote of 236-191.
