Sen. Cruz: Continuing Resolution is a ‘Missed Opportunity’ to Build the Wall

Opposes continuing resolution, urges Congress to secure the border

December 19, 2018



WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) today issued the following statement in opposition to the continuing resolution:

“The American people gave us a clear mandate: secure the border and build the wall.

“I have long called for building a wall as a necessary step in defending our border and stopping the flow of illegal immigration into our country. To that end, I introduced the EL CHAPO Act and the WALL Act – two bills that would offset the cost of completing the wall and securing our border.

“Unfortunately, this continuing resolution fails to reflect these priorities by not sufficiently securing the border. This is a missed opportunity to deliver on the promises made to the American people. Further, this bill continues to fund sanctuary cities, which are defying the law and making Americans less safe. We should instead pass Kate’s Law, a bill I introduced that would put criminal illegal immigrants in jail so they cannot prey on innocent Americans.

“Congress must do better. I will continue to fight for a better path that respects the will of the American people.”
