Press Release

WASHINGTON–U.S. Congressman Jeb Hensarling (TX-5) released the following statement in response to the Trump Administration announcing plans to deploy troops to the U.S.-Mexico border:

“As any Texan can tell you, our national borders are not secure enough. After so many years of failure with our country’s immigration system, it is refreshing to see the Trump Administration take bold action to protect our national and economic security. I applaud the administration’s plan to utilize the National Guard at the border – our citizens’ safety absolutely must come first. While America is a nation of immigrants, those seeking entry must respect the rule of law.”
