Daines Statement Opposing Senate Emergency Spending Bill

U.S. SENATE – U.S. Senator Steve Daines released the following statement today after voting against the Senate’s emergency spending bill:

“Our southern border is a crisis of the Biden administration’s own making. President Biden made it worse on Day One of his presidency by reversing President Trump’s policies that helped make it secure. The results speak for themselves with illegals who are on the FBI’s terror watch list and from countries designated as state sponsors of terror streaming across and overwhelming our border patrol agents.

“While I support providing lethal aid for Israel, Taiwan and Ukraine, I voted against the emergency supplemental spending bill today because securing our southern border should be our highest priority.”
