Barrow Opposes Obama Request
Friday, 11 July 2014
July 11-- U.S. Congressman John Barrow (GA-12) today released the following statement on President Barack Obama’s supplemental request of $3.7 billion to address the situation at the border.

Congressman Barrow said:

“Our number one priority right now should be to secure the border and enforce the laws we currently have on the books.  Just throwing money at the symptoms of the problem doesn't address the underlying causes of the problem. We need to address the vulnerabilities at our border that got us in this mess in the first place.  The President’s request spends money on unnecessary programs that we can’t afford and does nothing to address the actual problem, and I can’t support that.”
