WASHINGTON, DC - House Democratic Whip Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement in response to President Obama's remarks this evening on the humanitarian crisis at the border: 

“President Obama is correct – responding to the humanitarian crisis at the border will require Congress to work together in a responsible and bipartisan way.  The supplemental funding he has requested is an important step toward alleviating the current crisis, and I hope that Speaker Boehner and House Republicans will work with us to take the swift action necessary on that request.  House Democrats are ready to work across the aisle to address this challenge.”
