This bill reflects a bipartisan compromise that will keep the government funded through September and provide resources for border security, including the construction of 55 miles of new barriers. It’s not perfect, but it’s the best Congress can do.
This bill doesn’t provide enough funding for border security. Alternatively, it shouldn’t allow for the construction of any new barriers on the U.S.-Mexico border. Congress shouldn’t pass a nearly 1,200-page bill less than 24 hours after introducing it.
