NAW Urges Swift Passage of Border Security Bill

The Senate bill requests $60.1 billion for Ukraine aid, $14.1 billion for Israel and $20.2 billion to improve security at the U.S. border.

In a statement released Feb. 6, the National Association of Wholesaler-Distributors (NAW) voiced strong support for the recently released bipartisan Senate bill on border security and aid for Ukraine, Israel and Taiwan. The proposed $118 billion bill requests $60.1 billion for Ukraine aid, $14.1 billion for Israel and $20.2 billion to improve security at the U.S. border.

Eric Hoplin, President & CEO of NAW, released the following statement:

Eric Hoplin

“NAW commends the inclusion of urgently needed border security and immigration reforms in the Senate’s bipartisan emergency funding proposal. This marks an important first step in addressing the severity of the growing crisis at the southern border. We believe that comprehensive reforms, coupled with continued support for Ukraine, Israel and Taiwan, are essential to ensuring America’s security and economic well-being.

While NAW advocates for clear legal immigration pathways to add needed workers to help support our economy, Congress must address border security immediately. We encourage leaders from both parties to build on this momentum to find solutions that address these complex challenges.”
