Wicker Comments on Homeland Security Funding

U.S. Senator Roger Wicker, R-Miss., today urged Senate Democrats to stop obstructing legislation to fund the Department of Homeland Security. Democrats are blocking the bill in an effort to defend President Obama’s unconstitutional executive amnesty order. Wicker’s comments came during a Senate Republican leadership press conference.

“The vote today is a vote on whether or not to take up the House-passed bill that funds the Department of Homeland Security,” Wicker said. “It is time to go back to the sixth grade, realize that in order for this bill to be passed, we must first get on the bill.”

“If they [Democrats] don’t like it, they can vote against it on final passage, but the House has funded the Department of Homeland Security,” Wicker concluded. “We in the Republican Conference are eager to pass a bill funding the Department of Homeland Security, making it clear what we feel is constitutional and what is not constitutional and forwarding that bill on to the President so that this vital department can indeed be funded.”
