U.S. Rep. Terri Sewell, AL-07, released the following statement after voting in favor of four national security bills which passed the House Saturday with bipartisan support:

“At a time when democracy is under attack across the globe, America’s leadership is essential. The national security package passed by the House provides urgently needed resources to help Ukraine defeat Putin, deliver humanitarian assistance to civilians in Gaza, defend Israel in its proxy wars with Iran, and deter aggression by China against our Info-Pacific partners.

“To be clear, it should never have taken this long for House Republican leadership to meet the national security needs of the American people and our allies. House Republican inaction has allowed the United States to stand idly by as Ukraine is pushed to its breaking point. I am optimistic that the Senate will pass this legislation and President Biden will sign it into law without delay. History is watching the U.S. at this moment.”
