Congressman David Price of Chapel Hill will remain the ranking Democrat on the House Homeland Security Appropriations Subcommittee, he announced Tuesday. It is the same position he held in the last Congress.
The committee, which is chaired by Republican John Carter of Texas, is responsible for funding the Department of Homeland Security and related agencies.
Price said the committee's main tasks is handling budget requests for the department to keep America safe from "emerging threats."
But he also believes the committee can help in "shaping immigration enforcement policy" which can contribute to the push for comprehensive immigration reform.''
