Main Street Caucus Statement Following Republican Conference Meeting with President Trump
The Republican Main Street Caucus tonight released a statement following President Donald Trump’s address to the House Republican Conference in support of the immigration bills the U.S. House of Representatives is planning to bring to the floor for a vote later this week.
Chairman U.S. Rep. Rodney Davis (R-Ill.) and co-chairs U.S. Reps. Jeff Denham (R-Calif.), Fred Upton (R-Mich.), and Mario Diaz-Balart (R-Fla.) released the following statement:
“Since the beginning of this debate, Main Street members have been committed to finding a permanent solution for DACA recipients and adequate funding for border security that will prevent dangerous drugs, illegal guns, and criminals from flowing through our country. The President made clear tonight that a solution addressing these growing issues is long overdue. We are encouraged by his support and urge our colleagues to support this solution that gives certainty to DACA recipients, ends the cruel practice of separating families at the border, and provides $25 billion for border security. It’s our hope that this House will show leadership and be an example to the rest of the country that we can address many of these problems that have been facing our country for decades.”
