King Votes in Support of President Trump’s Effort to Build the Wall

Sep 27, 2019
Press Release

“Speaker Pelosi should be holding votes in the House of Representatives on the United States-Mexico-Canada (USMCA) trade deal, but she is increasingly choosing to waste the House’s time on political stunts designed to appease her Trump-hating caucus.”

Washington DC- Congressman Steve King releases this statement after voting against S. J. Res 54, legislation that seeks to terminate the national emergency declared by President Trump in February. President Trump declared a national emergency to address the ongoing national security and humanitarian crisis on the border with Mexico. When a similar resolution passed in March, President Trump vetoed the measure.

“The Open-Borders lobby never sleeps, and they have brought yet another bill to the floor in an attempt to end President Trump’s ongoing, important work to secure our border with Mexico,” said King. “I support President Trump’s effort to build a wall, and I encourage him to veto this bill when it is presented to him. Speaker Pelosi should be holding votes in the House of Representatives on the United States-Mexico-Canada (USMCA) trade deal, but she is increasingly choosing to waste the House’s time on political stunts designed to appease her Trump-hating caucus.”

S.J. Res 54 passed the House of Representatives on a vote of 236-174, with King voting against the bill. It has previously passed the Senate on a vote of 54-41, falling far short of the votes it would need in either chamber to override a veto if issued by President Trump.

Background:

Congressman King has consistently supported President Trump’s efforts to secure our border with Mexico. Here are some recent examples:
