Washington, D.C. – Bread for the World released the following statement regarding the funding deal to prevent another partial government shutdown. The statement can be attributed to Rev. David Beckmann, president of Bread for the World:
“Bread for the World calls on Congress to pass and the President to sign the bipartisan funding deal. While this deal is not perfect, it is a compromise that will ensure hundreds of thousands of low-income families will continue to receive nutrition and housing assistance. However, we were disappointed that the deal included harmful border enforcement provisions and did not add additional funding to address the root causes of migration from Central America. After this vote, Congress should immediately work to fund $600 million for Puerto Rico’s Nutrition Assistance Program.
“It is encouraging to see that global nutrition received a $20 million increase. This increase is greatly needed and will provide nutrition in the first 1,000 days between the start of a woman’s pregnancy and her child’s second birthday. In FY 2020, we urge Congress and the administration to increase funding for global nutrition and the root causes of migration from Central America.”
