McCaul on Signing of New Immigration Executive Order

WASHINGTON, D.C. – House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul (R-TX) issued the following statement on the heels of President Trump signing a new executive order regarding immigration and travel to the United States.

Chairman McCaul: “I have long supported taking bold steps to keep terrorists from entering America. I look forward to reading the details of the President’s new executive order and conducting oversight to ensure it is implemented smoothly. This month I am also launching a bipartisan Congressional task force focused on closing security gaps that might be exploited by jihadists to sneak into our country, and I hope the Administration will work closely with us to put in place new security checks to protect our people from the threat of terror.”
