DCCC Chairman Ben Ray Luján Statement on Republicans Playing Politics with Homeland Security

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chairman Ben Ray Luján issued the following statement in response to the Department of Homeland Security funding bill vote:

“House Republicans proved today that they are willing to play politics with our Homeland Security in an effort to cater to the extreme elements of their party who want to restart the deportations of kids who are here through no fault of their own and want to build a better life for themselves and their communities.  Republicans continue to move further and further to the right on immigration rather than try to work across the aisle to actually strengthen families, our economy, and our country.  Americans deserve better than to have leaders in Congress whose primary focus seems to be pleasing the Tea Party, even if it means tearing families apart and holding our country’s Homeland Security hostage to do so.”
