Palazzo and Harris Introduce Border Bonds Bill
Washington, DC - Representatives Steven Palazzo (MS-04) and Andy Harris, M.D. (MD-01) Members of the House Appropriations Committee introduced the Border Bonds for America Act of 2019 to authorize the Secretary of the Treasury to sell revenue bonds that will financially support construction of the southern border wall and improve security infrastructure at the southern border.
"Border security is national security. We can't afford to let political games get in the way of protecting our nation and its citizens. Our bill allows bonds to be purchased by American citizens in order to fund the border wall," Palazzo said. "It also allows the Administration to utilize financial resources, including donations by the American people, for the wall that Democrats refuse to provide.Historically, we've seen Americans rise to the occasion to support the defense of our country, and this is no different."
“This bill will create Border Bonds to fund the immediate construction of the wall to help our nation confront the growing humanitarian and security crisis created by failed open border policies," Harris said. "We must do everything we can to secure our borders as failure is not an option.”
