Congressman Ben Quayle released the following statement after President Obama signed the "Border Tunnel Prevention Act" into law yesterday. Rep. Quayle was the lead Republican sponsor of the bill, which passed the House last month.
"I'm proud to see the President sign this important legislation into law. For too long, criminal cartels have been able to construct and use illegal cross-border tunnels to smuggle weapons, drugs and people across our border, without facing adequately harsh consequences. This bill is an important step in our efforts to secure our Southern border."
