Washington, D.C. – Congressman Colin Allred (TX-32) released the following statement regarding Senators reaching a bipartisan agreement related to border security and providing aid to Israel, Ukraine and humanitarian aid to innocent Palestinians:
“Our immigration system is broken, and Texas needs action. For too long politicians have prioritized political stunts and talking points over real results. I welcome news that Senators from both sides of the aisle came together to forge this agreement.
“While there is more to do, including finally securing a pathway to citizenship for Dreamers, this bipartisan agreement is a much-needed step. It will secure our border, reform our asylum and visa systems and surge resources to the border where they are needed to address this crisis.
“Additionally, this agreement finally unlocks resources paramount for U.S. national security and global stability. This includes assistance for Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan as well as humanitarian aid for Gaza and the West Bank.
“This is no time for petty partisanship, it is time to come together and deliver for the American people. Let’s get it done.”
