U.S. Senator Ben Sasse released the following statement after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the Trump Administration can use military funds to build a wall along the southern border.

"I voted to support the President’s emergency declaration to build the wall because we have an obvious crisis at the border and the National Emergencies Act allows the President to act swiftly and decisively. It’s good that the Supreme Court has ruled that the Administration can get to work building the wall."
