Crenshaw leads bipartisan delegation investigating prohibition of private-citizen donations to CBP
To The Leader
WASHINGTON, DC – In response to recent reports that Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is legally prohibited from accepting donations from private citizens, Congressman Dan Crenshaw led a bipartisan congressional delegation in a letter to acting Secretary of Homeland Security Kevin McAleenan to find out why.
The letter asks a series of questions to clarify the reasoning behind the prohibition and to determine if legislative action is the best remedy for it.
Crenshaw said regarding their effort: “Congress must work together for a long-term solution, but in the interim, we can work in a bipartisan fashion to find ways to provide relief for migrants and CBP. America is a generous country and we should be able to continue that tradition, especially when the circumstances welcome it.”
The following members cosigned the letter: Don Bacon (NE-02), Kevin Brady (TX-08), Michael Cloud (TX-27), Matt Gaetz (FL-01), Jim Hagedorn (MN-01), Will Hurd (TX-23), Elaine Luria (VA-02), Michael McCaul (TX-10), Pete Olson (TX-22), Elissa Slotkin (MI-08), Van Taylor (TX-03), Xochitl Torres Small (NM-02), Jackie Walorski (IN-02), Randy Weber (TX-14), Rob Woodall (GA-07), Ron Wright (TX-06).
