U.S. Rep. Bradley Byrne, R-Alabama, delivered a speech Thursday from the floor of the House of Representatives urging Congressional Democrats to stop holding military funding hostage to advance their immigration agenda.
The federal government could go into a partial shutdown unless both Houses pass a continuing resolution to raise the debt ceiling and keep the government funded. Democrats are opposing any government funding mechanism unless Republicans give immunity from deportation to hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens who claim that they were brought here as children. Republicans, including Byrne, object to giving so many illegals blanket immunity for violating our nation’s immigration laws.
