The issues of Border Security are important to our district and to my work in Congress. I have visited the Texas-Mexico border to observe the security measures by the Department of Homeland Security first-hand.
Our northern and southern borders face a number of challenges every day including undocumented individuals illegally entering the United States to live and work; transnational criminals trying to smuggle in weapons and drugs; extremists who wish to disrupt our daily lives; and human trafficking – to name a few.
As a life-long Texan and former Member of the Homeland Security Appropriations Subcommittee, I understand the importance of securing our border. I believe it is our responsibility to ensure the Department of Homeland Security has the resources it needs to protect our border and keep us safe.
Border security is not only critical for national security, but also for continued economic growth.
Our North American neighbors – Canada and Mexico – are America’s largest export markets, so it is just as important to make sure our border policies enable the legal transportation of goods as long as they stop the illegal transportation of products and people.
I continue to hear the concerns of constituents about this issue and am committed to securing our borders.
