SHELBY: WE MUST SECURE OUR BORDERS NOW

U.S. Senator Richard Shelby (R-AL) today made the following the statement regarding border security:

“For decades we have watched as millions of illegal aliens crossed our borders without consequence. It is clear that our immigration system is broken. If we are to begin to address the problem, we must take swift and certain action to secure our porous borders. Using the National Guard is an important action that will allow us to bolster our presence on the border and deter those seeking to cross illegally.”
