June 23, 2020

WASHINGTON – Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Ala.), House Homeland Security Committee ranking member, issued the following statement as President Donald J. Trump visits Yuma, Arizona, to view the 200th mile of new border wall construction:

“Congratulations to President Trump on this huge milestone. Since the start of President Trump’s campaign, he has promised to make our country safer by ensuring the border wall system is built. The barrier deters illegal crossings, impedes drug trafficking, and enhances safety for our Border Patrol Agents. I’m thankful to this Administration and our border law enforcement officers for their work on an all-of-the-above strategy to secure our southern border including 21st century technology, all-weather patrol and access roads, additional agents, and the physical barrier the President viewed today.”
