DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY APPROPRIATIONS ACT, 2008 -- (House of Representatives - June 14, 2007)

BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mrs. BLACKBURN. Mr. Chairman, in response to a comment that was just made, I would remind my colleague that in this day and age and in this time in which we find ourselves, every State is a border State and every town is a border town because of the situation that we find on the southern border of this Nation.

Mr. Chairman, 283 Members of this body voted to build a fence, so it is incumbent upon us to appropriately and fully fund that fence.

I support the amendment of the gentlelady from Florida. I rise to support her efforts. I commend her for this. The bill before us underfunds the effort of building the fence.
