"USA!" Fox News reported the speech came as "the House moved forward with a spending bill that eliminates new funding for election security grants to states".
Republicans and Democrats tend to divide along party lines when it comes to immigration policy.
"The American people should be very anxious about the commitment of this president and his Republican allies in Congress to securing our elections", said Rep. David Cicilline, D-R.I.
Democrats argued the proof for more funding is in the wake of 12 Russians military officials indicted for alleged election hacking and President Donald Trump's performance during a news conference with Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland, in which he was largely deferential to the Russian leader. He said Texans should "stand up and fight" for American values. He said states still have money left from this year's $380 million appropriation - and that lawmakers have not been made aware of any outstanding needs as the November midterm elections approach.
Sessions continued saying that there is already enough funding and that there's no additional evidence from special counsel Robert Mueller's probe to suggest they need to up security.
Trump has made shifting statements on whether he agrees with the findings of US intelligence agencies that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 election. They seem to be particularly concerned since Russia's goal in interfering with the 2016 election was to elect Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton.
Trump told reporters at the White House that he had full faith and support for US intelligence agencies and accepted their conclusion that Russian Federation meddled in the election.
On Wednesday, a dozen Democrats took turns individually demanding $380 million worth of election security funds to be added to the 2019 spending bill before Thursday's vote. Rep. Jim McGovern (D-Mass.) urged, "History is going to look back on the inaction of this Congress with great shame". Rep. Dan Newhouse (R-Wash.) said, "There is no crisis".
"I haven't seen any evidence that the attempts to interfere in our election infrastructure was to favor a particular political party", Nielsen said Thursday at the Aspen Security Forum in Colorado, adding that Russian Federation is attempting to "cause chaos on both sides".
