FAIR Applauds House Republican Border Security Framework

WASHINGTON, July 29, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- The following statement was issued by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) in response to border security legislative recommendations unveiled by House Republicans this morning:

"Over the past 18 months, we have all witnessed the devastating harm wrought by a rogue administration that is asserting near dictatorial powers in a relentless effort to keep our borders open. The American people are appalled by what is going on and want to see it ended.

"When the 118th Congress opens with a new House majority, it will be in large part because Americans rejected the Biden administration's purposeful dismantling of our nation's borders, as well as Speaker Pelosi's amnesty-first legislative agenda. House Republicans will have a mandate to immediately act decisively to restore control of our borders and this framework from the American Security Task Force is a great first step.

"FAIR has been proud to stand with the strongest-ever assembled coalition of public interest groups and former immigration officials in calling for legislation right out the gate to end a border crisis deliberately instigated by the Biden administration. We thank Republican leaders for listening to our expertise and insight, and stand ready to work with them on turning this into legislative text."
