Press Release

Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) released the following statement Wednesday on forcing action to address the humanitarian crisis on our southern border:  

Today, we are forcing action to address the humanitarian crisis on our southern border. The truth to anyone being honest is there is a problem. It is far past time this body addressed it. We should act immediately in the following ways: fund President Trump’s $4.5 billion-dollar emergency supplemental request; end Catch & Release; ensure that parents and children are kept together in custody while their cases are pending; close all loopholes in our broken asylum system; and ensure unaccompanied alien minors are quickly and safely returned home.
