Griffith Statement on Democrat Effort to Weaken Border Security

Friday, September 27, 2019 – Congressman Morgan Griffith (R-VA) issued the following statement after voting to oppose the House Democrat effort to end the national emergency declared by President Trump at the southern border:

“The Trump Administration is using its lawful powers to try to secure our borders and reduce illegal immigration, but Speaker Pelosi and House Democrats are intent on undermining his efforts. Instead of working with Republicans on legislation to help American families, they chose to use the House’s time to vote yet again on a resolution ending the national emergency President Trump declared in response to the crisis on the southern border. This resolution is wrong.”


President Trump vetoed a similar resolution terminating the national emergency on March 15, 2019.
