Washington, DC – Today, Congresswoman Kay Granger (TX-12), top Republican on the House Appropriations Committee and member of the Homeland Security Conference Committee, issued the following statement following the State of the Union Address:

I was pleased to hear President Trump's continued vision of a bipartisan policy agenda – one that addresses border security, protects the American worker, and ensures the needs of our men and women in uniform are kept a priority. Having just returned from a three-day trip to the southern border, I am more convinced than ever that we must find a solution to the humanitarian and security crisis we face, and I look forward to working with my fellow conferees to put a bipartisan plan in place that does just that,” said Rep. Granger.
