Press Release

Washington, DC- Congresswoman Linda Sánchez (CA-38) issued the following statement after House Republicans passed a one week extension to fund the Department of Homeland Security:


“Republicans are playing a bad game of chicken with our national security,” said Congresswoman Sánchez. “Their one week funding extension for the Department of Homeland Security is indicative of the internal strife that interfering with their ability to legislate.   


Kicking the can down the road does nothing to resolve our differences on immigration. It only promotes the partisanship that is keeping us from addressing other pressing national issues. This is no way to run the country or conduct the nation’s business. 


Until Republicans decide to govern for the American people and not just a vocal minority in their caucus, I know we will continue to see this type of self-inflicted brinksmanship.”
