Press Release


WASHINGTON -- Congressman Bruce Westerman (R-Hot Springs) issued the following statement Tuesday (March 3) after voting against the Department of Homeland Security Appropriations Bill (H.R. 240)

“My vote today is in line with my vote six weeks ago. At that time, I voted to approve appropriations for the Department of Homeland Security while at the same time defunding the president’s illegal executive actions. I voted no today because the so-called ‘clean’ bill was anything but. It did nothing to address the president’s illegal actions and I will not lend my support to usurping the separation of powers outlined in the constitution be it for providing amnesty to illegal aliens or any other matter the president tries to legislate from the Oval Office.”
