Washington, DC - Today, Congressman Doug Lamborn (CO-05) issued the following statement regarding H.J. Res. 31:. 

"I'm disappointed in this deal. Border Patrol Agents have made their needs clear, and this legislation fails to provide for those needs. This isn't a serious attempt to stop illegal immigration and secure our border. A lot of Democrats want open borders and they will play politics to get that. They oppose policy simply because it's supported by President Trump. The president asked Congress to provide $5.7 billion to strengthen the southern border wall. This legislation falls short in appropriating only a quarter of that money. It's unacceptable. Congress can and should do better."
