Hill Statement on Passage of Border Security Bills in the House

WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman French Hill (AR-02) released the following statement after the House passed H.R. 3586, the Border and Maritime Coordination Improvement Act and H.R. 4482, the Southwest Border Security Threat Assessment Act of 2016:

“Our national security starts with our ability to protect our own borders from the flow of illegal traffic. I have made it a priority to be a positive voice on the issue of border security in the Congress, and I believe utilizing all the technologies at our disposal is vital to reducing potential threats at our border. Being able to listen to those on the ground, as well as immigration and border security experts, is why I have already made two trips to the U.S.-Mexico border in my first year in Congress. It is important to see the unique aspects of each part of our Southern Border, and it is why I will continue making these trips. The two bills we passed today are good steps towards better enhancing our border security, and I look forward to continuing to work on this important national security issue.”
