Congresswoman Barbara Comstock (R-10th) voted for the Department of Homeland Security funding bill, along with the majority, to see it pass in the U.S. House on Tuesday. Concerns about national security prompted her vote, as she explained in a press release afterward:
“President Obama’s misguided foreign policy that rewards our enemies and slights our allies has created an unstable world. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reminded all of us of that today in the House. I voted today to fund the Department of Homeland Security because we must continue to protect our borders, air travel, and ports with the dedicated employees that work tirelessly each and every day to keep America safe in this dangerous world.
“I fundamentally disagree with President Obama’s constitutional overreach on immigration. This bill contains no funding to carry out the unilateral actions by President Obama on immigration. [emphasis added]
