Kelly Statement on the Senate’s Bipartisan Border Agreement

Arizona Senator Mark Kelly released the following statement on the bipartisan Senate agreement to secure the U.S.-Mexico border and provide additional resources to Israel and Ukraine:   

“After decades of neglect, Congress has a real opportunity to address the growing humanitarian crisis impacting Arizona and other border communities. As a border senator, my state desperately needs additional resources and solutions to ensure an orderly, fair, and secure process at the border, and I will review this agreement closely.    

“This will also allow us to move forward with urgent support for our allies, Israel and Ukraine, which is critical for our own national security, and vital humanitarian aid for civilians in Gaza.  

“Although there is still more Congress must do to fix our broken immigration system, I urge my colleagues to not let politics get in the way of addressing this problem.”
