House Democrats spent two years in the minority last Congress admonishing Republicans for not doing enough to protect and care for migrant children crossing the nation’s southern border. Now in the majority with control over the House floor, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her conference are poised to let funding for the Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) program run out. Why? They never cared in the first place.
I urge my Senate colleagues who are planning to vote for Speaker Pelosi’s rebuke of President Trump’s Emergency Declaration to reconsider and reject her cynical and political resolution. I strongly urge the president to use his constitutional authority to veto the Pelosi legislation should it be passed out of the Senate.
