WASHINGTON — Today, Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH), Ranking Member of the House Judiciary Committee, released the following statement at the conclusion of the Committee’s consideration of the Democrats’ reconciliation bill.

“There’s a crisis at the southern border, our fundamental liberties are under attack, inflation is skyrocketing, crime is up in major cities, and Americans are still stranded in Afghanistan. Rather than address these real problems, Democrats chose to put illegal aliens ahead of American citizens by jamming through a $3.5 trillion spending boondoggle that grants amnesty to millions of illegal aliens and is financed by tax increases on American families.

Now, in the dead of night, and with America asleep, Chairman Nadler has shut off debate on common sense Republican amendments. Make no mistake, Judiciary Democrats are willing to put Americans last in order to implement their far-left socialist agenda.”
