Wednesday, February 25, US Representatives Martha Roby (R-Montgomery), Mo Brooks (R-Huntsville), Gary Palmer (R-Hoover), and Bradley Byrne (R-Montrose) today joined their fellow conservative lawmakers in a letter urging that House leadership hold firm in fully funding the Department of Homeland Security while specifically preventing funds from going to implement President Obama’s executive actions on immigration which they consider to be unlawful.
Congresswoman Roby said on Facebook, “You’ll see more on this in the coming days. Even though Senate Democrats continue to block a Homeland Security funding bill we passed last month, the House must hold firm. We have a responsibility to prohibit funding from being used to implement President Obama’s unlawful executive amnesty. I believe it would be a mistake for Senate Democrats and the president to choose executive amnesty over the responsible funding of Homeland Security, but it will be theirs to make. As our letter states, “District Court rulings can be overturned, but the power of the purse is absolute.” Stay tuned.”
