Langevin Statement on Final Passage of Combined Harvey Relief, Government Funding Package
Congressman Jim Langevin (D-RI) issued the following statement after voting in favor of the combined government spending, debt ceiling, and Hurricane Harvey relief package that passed the House by a vote of 316-90: “Today’s vote represents a victory for bipartisanship. Hurricanes do not respect party affiliation, and the brave first responders and volunteers leading the recovery from Harvey and the preparations for Irma are not Republicans or Democrats – they’re Americans. The disaster relief funds included in this bill will provide immediate relief to families taking stock after unprecedented flooding, and they constitute a crucial down payment for the years-long process of rebuilding. “This bill also staves off the government shutdown that was looming at the end of the month and will allow the government to continue paying its bills. I am thankful that the President was willing to work with Democratic leaders to come to this compromise, a welcome departure from his rhetoric
Langevin Statement on the Passage of Supplemental Funding Package for Hurricane Harvey Relief
Congressman Jim Langevin (D-RI) released the following statement after the House of Representatives passed $7.85 billion in supplemental funding for the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Small Business Administration following Hurricane Harvey: “The devastation to Houston and surrounding communities in Texas and Louisiana by Hurricane Harvey will affect families for years to come, and this funding package will ensure FEMA has the resources to begin the process of recovery during this difficult time. I’m pleased that Democrats and Republicans came together to support the immediate needs of the victims of Hurricane Harvey, especially as the southeast prepares for Hurricane Irma. This bill is only the first step in our national response to the unprecedented flooding caused by Harvey. But Americans are resilient, and with this much-needed support from Congress, we will work together to help the victims as they start to rebuild their lives.”

Langevin Statement on the President’s Decision to End DACA
Congressman Jim Langevin (D-RI) released the following statement regarding President Trump’s decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program: “Today marks a sad chapter in our country’s history. President Trump’s decision to end the DACA program is a victory for anti-immigrant ideologues and further evidence of his Administration’s general lack of empathy. DACA participants are not criminals. Their average age of immigration to the U.S. is six and half years old, and it would be a miscarriage of justice for us to punish them for their parents’ decisions. “Implementing today’s executive action will cause devastation to youth who are active members of Rhode Island’s communities and who strive for a better future. DACA recipients work, go to school, contribute to our economy, and serve in our military. They should not live in fear of deportation, rather they should be embraced as patriotic individuals who have always considered America their hom
