Congressman Markwayne Mullin (OK-2) released the following statement after the House voted on H.J. Res. 46, a bill to terminate the national emergency declaration made by President Trump:

“Presidents of the United States have the lawful right to declare a national emergency in times of great crisis,” said Mullin.  “Ninety percent of all heroin in the United States comes through our porous southern border.  Over 70,000 Americans died from drug overdoses in 2017.   There were 1.7 million pounds of narcotics seized by Customs and Border Protection during fiscal year 2018.  Without a doubt, our county is in the midst of a crisis.

“Presidents since Jimmy Carter have declared national emergencies for any number of reasons—both foreign and domestic.  They range from declarations on the blood diamond trade in Sierra Leone by President Bill Clinton to the swine flu epidemic and the threat of criminal cartels at our southern border declared by President Barack Obama,” concluded Mullin.  “This politically motivated charade put on by House Democrats must end.  We must build the wall in order to combat the crisis at our southern border.”
