Chairmen Green, Jordan, McCaul Statement on Passage of H.R. 2, Secure the Border Act
WASHINGTON, D.C.— Today, House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Mark E. Green, MD (R-TN), House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH), and House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Michael McCaul (R-TX) released the following statement on the passage of the Secure the Border Act of 2023 (H.R. 2) by the U.S. House of Representatives:
“After months of meticulous work in our committees and hearing from Border Patrol agents, property owners, business owners and everyday Americans on the frontlines of this crisis, House Republicans are fighting to do what the Biden administration refuses to: secure our sovereign borders and protect Americans. The images coming out of border communities preparing for the end of Title 42 this week are horrifying. There’s no question the border is not secure and the Biden administration has lost all control.
“However, unlike the Democrats, House Republicans refuse to stand by and allow this national security threat to continue unchecked. Today, we delivered real, actionable solutions to restore law and order at our border. As Title 42 ends today, there is no more time to waste. We urge the Senate to act and pass the Secure the Border Act to restore the integrity of our homeland security.”
