WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Mike Gallagher (R-WI) released the following statement in response to President Biden’s unnecessary request for an additional $30 billion in COVID-19 relief.
“It’s rich for President Biden to ask Congress for billions more in COVID relief when he 1) hasn’t even spent all the money Congress previously allocated, and 2) has a track record of wasting the money he has spent. Inflation just hit a 40-year high, and the last thing we need to do is throw fuel on the fire by giving this administration another slush fund they can use to address housing for illegal immigrants or any other unrelated crisis they’ve created.”
Last month, Rep. Gallagher joined his colleagues in demanding answers from President Biden over his administration’s decision to transfer millions of dollars in previous COVID-19 relief funds to support housing for illegal immigrants.
