Congressman Blum Releases Statement On DHS Bill
Representative Rod Blum released the following statement about today’s DHS bill:
“Today I voted against funding the President's illegal and unconstitutional executive actions on immigration. I had no choice but to do so: I took an oath to defend and uphold the Constitution of the United States. In past weeks I voted three times to fully fund the Department of Homeland Security while withholding funds for the President's illegal actions, only to see that legislation blocked by Senate Democrats who would rather blindly follow their party than uphold their oath. It's disingenuous to fault those of us who are simply asking the President to follow the law. In the real world the blame falls on the people who break the rules, not the people who are trying to enforce the rules.”
Rod Blum is the Republican Congressman in Iowa’s 1st District. He is a member of the Budget and Oversight & Government Reform Committees.
