Romney Statement on Spending, Border Security Deal

WASHINGTON—Senator Romney (R-UT) issued the following statement following the Senate’s vote on the Conference Report to accompany H.J.Res.31:

“While this bill is far from perfect, it includes critical funding for border security and immigration enforcement, and prevents another harmful government shutdown. I am glad the Senate was able to conclude this unfinished business from last year.

“I will reserve judgment on any potential executive action by the President until I am able to fully evaluate it, but as I’ve said, I do not believe declaring a national emergency is the right approach. I would also expect the President to stay within statutory and constitutional limits.”
