U.S. Congressman Mac Thornberry makes statement on border

Local News

U.S. Congressman Mac Thornberry released the following statement in light of the events at the border: 

“Our immigration system is in need of a major overhaul, but there is no excuse for separating children from their parents.  We should begin with heightened border security and interior enforcement, not the division of families. The House is currently considering legislation to secure our borders in the most humane way possible and to address the status of DACA recipients currently in our country.  We also need to reform our legal immigration system so that decisions are timely, contributing to the health and well-being of the country.”
