WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Darin LaHood (IL-18) voted in favor of the disaster supplemental appropriations bill to provide humanitarian assistance for the ongoing crisis at the southern border. The bill passed in the House by a vote of 305-102 and it now heads to President Trump’s desk for his signature. After the vote, Rep. LaHood released the following statement.  

“For months, President Trump and Republicans in Congress highlighted the humanitarian crisis at the southern border and the need for more resources to address it,” stated Rep. LaHood. “After much delay and highly politicized rhetoric, I’m glad that House Democrats finally came to the table to work with Republicans to address this crisis. Yesterday, I called for a bipartisan effort to address the issues at our southern border and I am pleased that bipartisanship prevailed in the end to provide the necessary humanitarian aid.”
