Rep. Cloud Issues a Statement Regarding the Budget Impasse and Funding Border Security 

WASHINGTON--Rep. Michael Cloud (Texas-27) issued the following statement on the upcoming continuing resolution and its failure to fund a border wall:

"Last night, I took to the House floor to discuss the humanitarian crisis that is unfolding at our borders. Cartels continue to abuse our nation's generosity and profit from the trafficking of drugs and humans. A southern border wall would push back on these crimes by ensuring that migrants cross through a port of entry and can be protected by law enforcement officials--men and women committed to the safety of all people.

A border wall has been codified into law for decades, and it is time for House Republicans to take a stand for the rule of law."
