Washington, DC – Today, Florida Congressman Daniel Webster (R-Clermont) released the following statement after voting for H.Res. 990 – Supporting the officers and personnel who carry out the important mission of the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

“America is a nation of laws. Our nation’s law enforcement officers play a vital role in preventing crime and promoting a sense of security for all who live, work and play in our communities. In 2016, Immigration and Custom Enforcement (ICE) agents, arrested nearly 2,000 individuals for human trafficking and provided critical services to more than 400 trafficking victims.
