: The President declared a National Emergency at the southern border. I spoke with over the weekend to reassure wildfire victims that money for the border wall will not be taken from wildfire relief funds.

(4/4) The situation at the southern border is a humanitarian and national security crisis, and it’s a national emergency. The stubborn opposition to a regulated border is incomprehensible and endangers American citizens.

(3/4) I’ve been working with the White House to ensure funding for disaster recovery and critical civil works projects, such as levees and water storage, are not affected by a shift in funding in this process.

(2/4) This decision is not without precedent – there have been nearly 60 national emergencies declared by U.S. Presidents since 1976. Similarly, previous governors of New Mexico and Arizona have also declared states of emergency along the border in the past.

(1/4) I support the President’s decision today to use the powers of the Executive to secure our southern border. I would have preferred to accomplish this legislatively, but the intractability of Democrat leadership to adequately address this issue has made that impossible.

I just asked unanimous consent to bring the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act to the House floor for a vote. Democrats objected. Protecting the lives of children should not be a partisan issue – it is just what’s right.

Two years ago today, 188,000 people were evacuated as concerns grew that the Oroville Dam spillway might fail. Fortunately, that never happened, but the spillways and other infrastructure have been undergoing major repairs ever since.

With all that veterans and their families sacrifice for our country, every veteran should have the opportunity to include their spouse on their own tombstone if they so wish. Honoring the families of our veterans is something that everyone can and should support.

Under current law, the spouse of a veteran is not permitted to be recognized on a VA-provided gravestone. I thank my colleague, for joining me in introducing the Honoring Veterans’ Families Act to correct this oversight.
