Norcross, Kim, Sherrill React to Updated Move by Trump Admin to Fund Border Wall at Military’s Expense

Today, New Jersey’s three U.S. House Representatives who serve on the Armed Services Committee – Donald Norcross, Andy Kim and Mikie Sherrill – condemned the Trump Administration’s most recent effort to pay for the construction of a wall on the southwest border by using funds originally authorized and appropriated for critical military construction projects.

“President Trump failed to convince Mexico, a Republican-controlled Congress and the American people to pay for his ineffective wall. Now he’s taking money away from our military through an unconstitutional power grab in order to pay for his wall. It’s appalling and we can’t stand for it,” said Congressman Norcross. “While I’m relieved New Jersey projects remain on track for now, Trump has already raided disaster preparedness funds for bases during hurricane season and, now, critical military construction projects across the country and overseas will no longer be able to proceed as Congress intended. The proposed changes will directly harm our military readiness and undermine our country’s ability to fulfill overseas missions and thwart potential threats.”

Norcross to Convene Roundtable with South Jersey Type 1 Diabetics on the High Prices of Prescription Drugs, Including Insulin

“Throughout the year, I’ve been hearing from New Jersey patients, pharmacists and doctors about how the high prices are forcing people to make unthinkable choices. In these conversations, unaffordable insulin is often mentioned. That’s why I want to hear from the families directly impacted in our community and discuss how we can stand up to big pharma together,” said Congressman Donald Norcross. “Families are crying out for relief – we must rein in high prescription drug costs.”
