Rep. Andy Harris Addresses Border Security Infrastructure

July 3, 2019

As a member of the Appropriations Committee, I have seen firsthand the attempts by liberals in Congress to block the President’s efforts to address the growing crisis on our southern border.  In May, when preparing the Department of Defense’s (DOD) annual appropriations bill, liberals inserted an extreme provision that would prohibit the use of funds not only to construct walls on the southern border of the United States, but also to pay for any border security infrastructure – such as cameras, lights, and advanced detection technologies.  As a result, I offered an amendment that would remove that prohibition and allow all types of construction, including walls and infrastructure.  You can view the video here
