Press Release

Washington, D.C.—February 26, 2019—Congressman David Kustoff (TN-08) released the following statement after the passage of a Resolution disapproving of President Trump’s National Emergency Declaration.

“Our southern border needs to be secured," said Congressman Kustoff. "The current humanitarian crisis at our southern border presents a direct threat to our national security interests, and the bill sponsored by Democrats today would prevent the President from taking action to address illegal immigration and drug trafficking. I will continue to work with President Trump to build the wall and ensure the safety and protection of all Americans.”
