Immigration & Border Security

Our nation has a crisis at its southern border. As a sheriff for eight years, I witnessed how the consequences of an open border effect communities across the nation. As a Congressman, I made it a priority to visit the border and see the problems there for myself.

Under Biden's broken border system, every state is a border state. This administration's border policies encourage illegal immigration and empowers cartels and other bad actors, endangering the lives of both American citizens and migrants.

It's time to fix the border crisis because border security is national security. As a member of the House Committee on Homeland Security, I'm fighting to secure our southern border and keep drugs out of our country.

Key Immigration & Border Security Legislation:
  • Cosponsored H.R. 597 (Introduced on 01.27.23) — Declares Mexican cartels enemies of the United States and imposes sanctions on individuals, companies, and governments who provide support to cartels
  • Cosponsored H.R. 1401 (Introduced on 03.07.23) — Requires executive branch officials to regularly update policies and technologies at the Southern Border to respond to new strategies used by drug smugglers and human traffickers
  • Cosponsored H.R. 1758 (Introduced on 03.23.23) — Makes fentanyl a Schedule I controlled substance, codifying an emergency DEA scheduling that would expire in December of 2024
