Press Release

Washington, D.C. — Rep. Matt Salmon (AZ-05) today issued the following statement regarding the House’s deliberations on passing a supplemental spending bill to address the border crisis.

“Today was a wild day in the House.  To set the record straight, I am one hundred percent against doing nothing to fix our border crisis.  While I believe that the Secure the Southwest Border Act of 2014 made a number of positive changes to secure our border and address this humanitarian crisis, there were some in our conference that wanted to craft a better, stronger bill.  I support their efforts as well.  We will continue to work to improve and bolster this bill, and I am committed to staying in Washington, D.C. until we approve a plan to secure our borders and help these children.”

Rep. Matt Salmon (AZ-05) serves on the House Committee on Foreign Affairs as Chairman of the Subcommittee on the Western Hemisphere. He is also a member of the House Committee on Education and the Workforce.
