Washington, D.C. – House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) released the following statement on President Trump’s actions to defend the border:

“Few things are more fundamental to a nation than a defined and protected border. The lack of security on our southern border is a threat to the safety of our homeland and the Obama Administration’s catch-and-release policy was an affront to the rule of law. President Trump’s actions are the right start to enforcing our laws and protecting our citizens.”
