WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, released the following statement regarding Department of Homeland Security funding:

"It is both reckless and irresponsible for Democrats to continue to filibuster funding for the Department of Homeland Security in a misguided attempt to preserve President Obama's executive amnesty, which has already been rejected by the voters and declared illegal by a federal court. The federal court injunction was a major victory for the rule of law, and we need to hold the Administration accountable to comply in every respect. Leadership's current plan - to pass clean DHS funding and separate legislation barring executive amnesty - is a mistake. Congress is obliged to use every constitutional check and balance we have to rein in President Obama's lawlessness, and that includes both our confirmation authority over nominees and the power of the purse."
