Border Patrol agents are on pace to make more than 2 million apprehensions of illegal border crossers during the current fiscal year. It’s past time for Congress to take action to end this historic border crisis!
I urge you to immediately pass legislation that would:
- Mandate the successful Remain in Mexico policy that requires asylum seekers to remain in Mexico until their asylum hearing.
- End asylum shopping by preventing illegal border crossers from applying for asylum when they’ve travelled through a safe third country en route to the U.S. I urge you to immediately work with your colleagues to pass these reforms through Congress!
- Strengthen border security by building more border barriers.
These three actions aren’t the only ones needed to stop future surges, but all three will go a long way in ending the current border surge and preventing future ones.
