Border enforcement bill "critical"
Congressman Phil Gingrey, M.D., along with other House Immigration Reform Caucus Executive Committee Members, today announced H.R. 2220. The “Support More Assets, Resources and Technology on the Border Act” (SMART Border Act) outlines a robust border protection strategy and measures to help achieve operational control of the U.S.’s southern border. This legislation is the strongest border security bill introduced this Congress.
“Enhancing border security must be a top priority as Congress works towards reforming our broken immigration system,” said Rep. Flores. “The SMART Border Act will assist in creating a strong and secure border by putting boots on the ground and by taking full advantage of available resources and innovative technologies. It will also mandate the full implementation of US VISIT at all points of entry to assist in putting an end visa overstays, which account for 60 percent of the illegal immigrants in our country. By putting forth essential solutions to secure our borders we can ultimately control our immigration system.”
