Rep. Ratcliffe backs Trump’s call for border security funding

Rep. Ratcliffe

WASHINGTON – Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-Texas) released the following statement on President Trump’s national address about securing the Southern Border:

“I strongly support President Trump’s call for Democrats to stop playing politics with America’s safety by refusing to fund border security. This is the sole reason our federal government remains shut down. It’s time to end this game and address the crisis at our Southern Border. We must equip our law enforcement professionals and border agents with the resources they’ve requested – including a physical barrier – so they can properly perform their mission to protect us from the criminal gangs, drug smugglers and human traffickers seeping into our country.”
