Coffman Statement on Vote for Clean DHS Bill
(Washington, D.C.)– U.S. Representative Mike Coffman (R-CO) offered the following statement after voting to fund the Department of Homeland Security for the rest of the fiscal year.
“I strongly oppose the President's unilateral actions that I believe are unconstitutional but this issue is now being addressed where it should be: the courts. A federal district judge has already issued a stay preventing the implementation of the President's executive order and I am confident that the courts will continue to agree that the President's actions exceed his authority and are a failure on his part to do his duty to faithfully execute the laws as enacted by Congress. While I strongly oppose the President's overreach, shutting down the Department of Homeland Security is not the right approach given our national security challenges.”
