WASHINGTON— Today, Congressmen Henry Cuellar (TX-28) and Vicente Gonzalez (TX-15) released the following statement after a conversation with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer regarding border wall funding:

“We want to thank Leader Schumer for discussing our real concerns with providing unnecessary wall funding to the President.  We are pleased to agree that we should be focused on real border security, and not the President’s campaign obsession with a concrete wall. We look forward to continuing to work with Leader Chuck Schumer, Leader Nancy Pelosi, and the leadership of the Appropriations Committee to ensure the President’s $5 billion wall does not become a reality.”
