Congressman Pitts Votes to Improve Border Security

Washington - Congressman Joe Pitts (R, PA-16) today voted in favor of H.R. 6061, The Secure Fence Act of 2006. This legislation strengthens our national security by providing for stronger security measures along our borders. It passed in the House today by a vote of 283-138.

"The porous, outdated security measures currently in place along our southwest border are simply unacceptable in a post-9/11 environment," Congressman Pitts said. "This legislation will allow us to get control over our own borders and stop the unchecked flow of illegal crossings into our country that threaten our security."
