US Rep Guinta on passage of DHS funding bill


WASHINGTON. D.C. – Congressman Frank Guinta released the following statement today following the passage of H.R. 240 – a bill to provide funding for the Department of Homeland Security through the rest of FY 2015:


“Like many Granite Staters, I oppose President Obama’s executive overreach granting de facto amnesty to millions of individuals who came here illegally.  The President has lost more than a dozen, unanimous decisions before the Supreme Court in the last few years alone; and, most recently a court found that he had exceeded his authority with regard to amnesty.  This was the correct decision.  We have an obligation to provide for the common defense; and, I believe that our national security is of utmost importance.  For these reasons, I voted to fund the Department of Homeland Security through the end of the fiscal year; and, look forward to working with my colleagues to ensure our border is secured and our nation is protected.”
