McSally: “We should not be playing politics on this issue to stop our military from getting the funding they need to keep us safe”

WASHINGTON, DC—U.S. Representative Martha McSally yesterday joined President Donald Trump in a bipartisan meeting with members of the House and Senate to discuss the path forward on border security and immigration reform.

During the meeting, President Trump discussed the border security plan that Rep. McSally has been working on for the past few months with House Homeland Security Chairman Michael McCaul, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, and Representative Paul Labrador. Congresswoman McSally pushed for real and lasting solutions that will strengthen America’s borders and fix the nation’s broken immigration system. Their bill will be introduced later today.

Congresswoman McSally also took charge of the meeting to demand that American troops are not held hostage during negotiations over DACA.

“The lives that are hanging in the balance are those of our military. They need the equipment and the funding to keep us safe,” said Congresswoman McSally. “We should not be playing politics on this issue to stop our military from getting the funding they need. We have the right people in the room to solve this issue…let’s roll up our sleeves and work together on this.”
