“I made a similar promise: an oath to uphold the U.S. Constitution and protect our country, and that’s why I will vote on spending bills that properly continue fixing our border security, including an effective wall.”

 Congressman Todd Rokita, Vice Chairman of the Budget Committee, applauded President Trump’s commitment to funding the border wall. Congressman Rokita also announced today, he will not vote for any spending deal that does not fund the border wall.

“President Trump made a promise to the American people to build the border wall, and it is now time for Congress to help deliver by providing the necessary funding to build the wall,” said Congressman Todd Rokita. “I made a similar promise: an oath to uphold the U.S. Constitution and protect our country, and that’s why I will vote on spending bills that properly continue fixing our border security, including an effective wall.”

Congressman Rokita continued:

I will vote no on any short-term spending bill that fails to fund the border wall, and I urge President Trump to remain steadfast in his commitment to keeping our nation safe. Punting our inability to fund the border wall to soon-to-be Speaker Pelosi and a Democrat-controlled House is irresponsible. We cannot abdicate our responsibilities to the American people, so I will be saying ‘no’ when ‘no’ is what’s required to be said. Let’s keep our promise to the American people, fund the wall, and prioritize the safety and security of our nation.”
