Kinzinger among House members supporting border legislation

Posted by wlpo on August 1, 2014

More money for security and agents along the U.S. and Mexico border is included in a bill passed by House Republicans. Your congressman, Republican Adam Kinzinger, was among those supporting the Southwest Border Supplemental Appropriations Act of 2014. It was passed Friday.

The bill includes money to send National Guard members to the border and money to speed up the processes of returning migrant children to from where they came.

It’s a $694 million bill and Kinzinger says funding for it will be offset by spending reductions and that it will not add to the national debt.
