The border crisis is real—and inaction by Congressional Democrats is irresponsible. To protect our communities, the Trump Administration is requesting funds for common sense border security funding.
We must have a secure border in order to:
- Reduce illegal immigration.
- Protect American lives.
- Combat the opioid epidemic.
- Protect vulnerable individuals from exploitation by human traffickers.
Insufficient border security is creating a crisis in communities across America and at the southern border. For instance, 90 percent of the heroin in America comes through our southern border, fueling the opioid epidemic and destroying our communities.
