Rep. Murphy to Newsmax: US Has ‘Obligation to Stop Putin’

Rep. Greg Murphy, R-N.C., told Newsmax Tuesday that House Republicans did not attach a bill that would prevent illegal aliens from being counted in the census to must-pass legislation, like funding for Ukraine, because that would have killed the foreign aid bill.

“Most likely, if this were in the bill, the thing would have been dead and I think we have an obligation to stop [Russian President Vladimir] Putin where he is; and for the rest of Europe, there’s so many different consequences,” Murphy said during an appearance on Newsmax’s “The Chris Salcedo Show.” “I think, sadly enough, we’re developing a little bit of isolationism here in the United States, not looking at the big picture. We’re in 1939 right now, and if we act like we … are turning a blind eye to the rest of the world, we will end up having to have boots on the ground with NATO – as we’ve signed a treaty with NATO – in the not too distant future. So, we have to be a little bit further out in front of our skis to really see what the ramifications can occur for not participating in the world politic.”

On Wednesday, House Republicans passed the Equal Representation Act in a party-line 206-202 vote, according to The Hill. The measure would direct the Census Bureau to add a citizenship question to the 10-year survey and require that the U.S. government only count citizens when determining the number of congressional seats for each state.
