Carter Statement on President's Immigration Speech
Representative John Carter (TX-31) made the following statement in response to the President's speech on border security and immigration:
"Successful immigration policy begins by securing our nation's border. I applaud the President for calling on the National Guard to assist in border security. Utilizing the additional manpower and technology resources that the Guard has to offer is an important and immediate way to make our border more secure. The long term solution is to put significantly more border security personnel and more technology on the border.
"I continue to lend my full support to the legislation passed by the House as a comprehensive approach to handling our nation's border security needs. I will also push for initiatives that will allow for a system of 100 percent catch and return. It is time that we implement and enforce real border security reform now."
