DHS Secretary Nielsen Joins Vice President Pence Along the Southern Border

Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen M. Nielsen joined Vice President Mike Pence along the southern border in McAllen, Texas. While in McAllen, Secretary Nielsen and Vice President Pence took an operational tour of the Hidalgo Port of Entry. They also participated in a roundtable discussion with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) personnel from Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Customs and Border Protection, and United States Citizenship and Immigration Services. During the roundtable, the group discussed the need to end dangerous loopholes and secure our borders to keep American communities safe.

To Make America Safe Again, We Must End Sanctuary Cities and Remove Criminal Aliens

Non-cooperative jurisdictions that do not honor U.S. Immigration and Customs (ICE) detainer requests to hold criminal aliens who are already in their custody, endanger the public and threaten officer safety by releasing criminal aliens back into the community to re-offend. In addition to causing preventable crimes, this creates another “pull factor” that increases illegal immigration.

We Must Secure The Border And Build The Wall To Make America Safe Again

Walls Work. When it comes to stopping drugs and illegal aliens across our borders, border walls have proven to be extremely effective. Border security relies on a combination of border infrastructure, technology, personnel and partnerships with law enforcement at the state, local, tribal, and federal level.

Schumer-Rounds-Collins Destroys Ability of DHS to Enforce Immigration Laws, Creating a Mass Amnesty For Over 10 Million Illegal Aliens, Including Criminals

The Schumer-Rounds-Collins proposal destroys the ability of the men and women from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to remove millions of illegal aliens. It would be the end of immigration enforcement in America and only serve to draw millions more illegal aliens with no way to remove them.  By halting immigration enforcement for all aliens who arrived before June 2018, it ignores the lessons of 9/11 and significantly increases the risk of crime and terrorism.
