Washington, D.C. – Today, Congresswoman Elise Stefanik voted in support of the disapproval of the national emergency declaration and released the following statement:

“While I continue to be a strong supporter of securing our border, I believe the President declaring a national emergency that will take funding from our country’s military construction projects is the wrong decision,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “For this reason, I voted in support of today’s resolution disapproving of the national emergency with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle. As a Constitutional conservative, I consistently criticized President Obama's executive overreach. No matter what Party is represented in the White House, I will stand up against executive action that circumvents Congress. I will continue to negotiate in good faith to fully fund securing the border, and I urge my Democrat colleagues to commit to doing the same.”
