Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Today Rep. Pete Olson (R-TX) issued the following statement after opposing the House motion to override President Trump’s veto of H.J. Res. 46:

“Commander in Chief Trump knows that we are at war with the drug cartels on the Texas border with Mexico. The cartels control the drugs, human traffickers and violent criminal gangs like MS-13. The innocent lives of children are being destroyed by the humanitarian crisis occurring amidst this war. The Democrats know we have a crisis, but play politics with our national security by seeking to override the president’s veto of their resolution to terminate the emergency declaration. I’m pleased the House lacked the votes to terminate the emergency declaration. Let’s get to work to secure the border and protect the public immediately.”
