Washington, D.C. — U.S. Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) and John Boozman (R-AR) introduced legislation to block the Biden Administration from diverting U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) resources from our nation’s veterans to manage the escalating crisis at the southern border.

“It’s despicable that the Biden Administration would prioritize resources for illegal immigrants over the veterans who bravely served our country,” Rubio said. “This bill would ensure that VA resources are not diverted to deal with the administration’s growing border surge.”
 
“Veterans should not bear the burden of President Biden’s disastrous immigration policy. Moving resources away from serving the needs of our veterans to supporting a foreseeable and avoidable crisis at our southern border is unacceptable,” Boozman said. “Our legislation ensures the care and services for the men and women who bravely fought for our country are prioritized over illegal immigrants.”
