Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-Texas) released the following statement on his vote Thursday for legislation that included $5.7 billion in funding for the wall along the U.S.-Mexico border:

“I was proud to vote for the passage of $5.7 billion to fund the wall along our Southern Border, so we can stop the flow of dangerous criminals, terrorists, human traffickers and drug traffickers into our country. After all, if the federal government is serious about protecting the American people, securing the sovereignty and integrity of our territorial borders is not optional – it’s mandatory.  I’m grateful for President Trump’s strong support of our efforts to close our porous borders through the construction of a border wall, and I will continue fighting for strong border security and interior enforcement measures that prioritize the safety of our citizens.”
