Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C.- U.S. Representative Mark Walker (R-N.C.) joined Fox Business’ Mornings with Maria to discuss illegal immigration, the U.S. Census, the USMCA trade deal, and divisions in the House Democratic caucus.

Watch the full interview here and see excerpts below:

On U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-N.Y.) suggestion to eliminate the Department of Homeland Security:

“I can tell you right now and I get to go to all of the classified briefings from our national security agencies, we have over 1,000 ongoing investigations by the FBI due to terroristic activity. Once again, the far left being led by ‘the Squad’ if you will do not understand the very basic principles of security in the United States of America.”

On the USMCA trade deal:

“When Justin Trudeau, the Canadian prime minister who’s no fan of Trump when he’s here at the Capitol lobbying for something that would continue to improve the Trump economy, absolutely it’s a good thing. In my state it’s 300,000 jobs impacted, across the country could be connected with more than 22 million jobs. This is good for the economy, it’s good for the country, but once again, Democrats are more concerned about the politics and their hatred for the president than doing what’s best for the American people.”

On Division in the House Democratic caucus:

“This isn’t just about ‘the Squad’. I guess Nancy Pelosi likes to make it that but if you go back and look at the humanitarian aid which the Democrats have been calling for for the better part of a year and sometimes rightfully so. It wasn’t just the four people that voted against this, this was close to 100 Democrats. We want to make sure that we’re really putting the spotlight on how far left the Democratic Congress is leading these days.”
