Press Release

WASHINGTON – Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-Texas) released the following statement on President Trump’s visit to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Yuma Station. The visit focused on evaluating U.S. Border Patrol operational results, policy initiatives and personnel morale, as Congress and the Trump administration seek to build upon legislative efforts like Kate’s Law and the No Sanctuary for Criminals Act:

“I’d like to thank the Trump administration for working closely with Congress on securing our borders and enforcing our immigration laws. After the Obama administration’s failure to protect the sovereignty and integrity of our territorial borders – which led to more crimes within our homeland and the unnecessary loss of life at the hands of criminal aliens – it’s encouraging that President Trump’s commitment to prioritizing border security has already made our country a safer place. As a member of the House Judiciary and Homeland Security committees, I look forward to continuing my work alongside the Trump administration in building upon the progress we’ve made to protect the American people.”
