WASHINGTON—House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Doug Collins (R-Ga.) released the following statement in response to President Donald Trump’s national address:

“The humanitarian crisis at our southern border demands immediate action, and I support President Trump’s commitment to securing our border. He is not alone in this commitment. Congress should address the crisis that continues to dismantle families by fixing loopholes in the law and funding border security as the faithful men and women of Customs and Border Protection offer aid to families and guard our border each day. As long as border officials refer 50 migrants for medical care each day and 300 Americans are overdosing on heroin each week, there’s no time for the Democrats to continue to ignore this crisis and oppose clear solutions to it.”
