Crenshaw Demonstrates Commitment to Securing the Border, Rejects Spending Bill

WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Dan Crenshaw released the following statement after voting against the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2019. 

“I reluctantly voted against this bill,” said Crenshaw. “There are many things to like in this bill and many examples of good-faith compromises. But this vote was about the border security debate, an issue which shouldn't be debatable in the first place. There are approximately 400,000 illegal immigrants apprehended while crossing our border each year, and this bill does not take the necessary steps to fix this problem. This issue is not about who wins arbitrary political battles; it’s about the security and sovereignty of our nation. When will we start taking it seriously and finally give our border agents the resources they’ve requested?”
