Today, the Democrat-led U.S. House of Representatives moved forward with two appropriations bills while continuing to reject the President's pleas for enhanced border security initiatives. In a largely party line vote, H.R. 265 passed 243 to 183 and H.R. 267 passed 244 to 180.

"I implore Speaker Pelosi to work with the President on a plan that prioritizes the safety of all Americans. I am committed to working with anyone -- progressive, liberal, moderate, or conservative -- who wants to crack down on drug dealers and smugglers, eradicate human trafficking and sexual slavery, and fund the government," said Congressman Woodall. "Democrats should come to the table and craft a solution that works for everyone."

Congressman Woodall represents the Seventh Congressional District of Georgia, which includes significant portions of Forsyth and Gwinnett counties. He currently serves on the Rules Committee as well as the Transportation & Infrastructure Committee.
