Senator Tom Cotton Statement on Spending Bill Vote

Washington D.C. – Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today released the following statement on the Senate vote on the spending bill:

“While I’m pleased this bill makes a down payment on border security, I can’t support its limits on the construction of physical barriers as well as law enforcement’s authority to detain and deport criminal illegal aliens. Congress must act to fully secure our border and stop the flow of illegal aliens and deadly drugs into our country.”
