CARTER SUPPORTS BORDER FENCE BILL
Carter: House-Passed Bill Will Address Bleeding At the Border
Washington, DC, Sep 14 - U.S. Congressman John Carter (TX-31) today supported House passage of a bill that will help secure our nation's borders, the most pressing issue in the border security and immigration debate. H.R. 6061, the Secure Fence Act, is an emergency measure that would mandate operational control of all borders and ports through enhanced Border Patrol operations, physical barriers, and state-of-the-art technology along the southwest border, including reinforced fencing.
"The Secure Fence Act is the first step in addressing one of our nation's greatest security vulnerabilities: our porous borders. I have consistently called for a plan that begins by securing our border with increased personnel and resources, and this goes a long way toward accomplishing these goals," Congressman Carter said. "Additional resources along the Texas border have drastically lowered crime rates and made our nation more secure. This bill is an important piece of greater border security reform that is critical to our nation's homeland security."
