Luján Statement on National Security Supplemental to Support American Allies and Global Security

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Ben Ray Luján (D-N.M.) issued the following statement after passing the bipartisan national security supplemental to support Ukraine, Israel, the Indo-Pacific, and humanitarian assistance:

“Today, Congress sent a strong message to the world that we will not abandon our allies or the pursuit of global security. This national security supplemental, which includes badly-needed support to our allies in Ukraine, Israel, and the Indo-Pacific, will help deter aggression from our adversaries who seek to dismantle democracies. The need for this aid could not be more urgent.

“This package also includes humanitarian assistance for innocent civilians in Gaza. I have been clear that humanitarian aid access should be expanded to ensure safe and timely delivery. It’s our duty as Americans and as a Congress to uphold international humanitarian law.

“While I believe this package should have been passed months ago, I am glad that the House finally sent the Senate a bill that can garner bipartisan support and become law. Our national and global security interests must always come before partisan differences. This is a moment in history that requires leadership, and I am proud that Congress is living up to that responsibility.”
