Press release

 

 


WASHINGTON—Congressman Markwayne Mullin (OK-2) released the following statement after President Trump declared a state of emergency at our southern border and directed funds to construct or repair as many as 234 miles of a border barrier:

 


“I support the president and his right to do whatever he deems necessary to keep the American people safe,” said Mullin. “We can no longer ignore the influx of deadly drugs, human trafficking, and criminal activity at the U.S.-Mexico border. The president is our commander-in-chief. If he deems the crisis at our southern border an emergency, I am confident it is. I am proud to stand behind President Trump as he builds the wall to protect the law abiding citizens inside the United States.”
