June 16, 2022 Statement

"The history of our nation is one of unprecedented immigration, refuge, and fight. I reject the false dichotomy that we must leave our values at the door as we look to protect and strengthen our nation’s security. This bill is proof of that."

"Our Subcommittee has one of the most controversial jurisdictions, which makes it all the more important for us to work collegially.  I think we do that well, and I very much appreciate the Ranking Member’s contributions to maintaining that approach, along with those of the other subcommittee members.  And outside of the border security and immigration enforcement areas, there is much in the bill on which we are in full agreement."

"I am so proud of all of these initiatives, which, when you take them together, they strengthen, they sustain this institution and our democracy, because Congress and our democracy are strongest and most resilient when we prioritize safety, diversity, and progress."
June 15, 2022 Statement
"This bill continues to build on our significant security needs and addresses many of the recommendations and security assessments received after the January 6th attack. Almost 70 percent of this increase is targeted towards security measures within the Sergeant at Arms, Architect of the Capitol and Capitol Police budgets. These funds continue our investments in securing our Capitol Complex. Threats against Members have increased over the last two years and this must NOT be taken lightly, NOR will we take lightly the safety of our staff and citizens who travel far and wide to visit these hallowed halls."
