Rep. Rose: “We Must Resume Construction on the Border Wall and Finish the Job”

WASHINGTON, DC—U.S. Representative John Rose (TN-06) took to the House Floor Tuesday to highlight the ongoing national security and humanitarian issues presented by the southern border crisis. Rep. Rose also expressed the need for a border wall.

The full remarks, as prepared for delivery, are below:  

Mr. Speaker, after three and a half years of open border policies, the Biden Administration has turned every state in our union into a border state.

On Monday, the special agent in charge of the FBI office in Albuquerque was asked about the rise in violence and drug trafficking in New Mexico. He placed the blame squarely on the crisis along our southern border.

He said, in part, quote, “part of the problem is we have an incomplete border. There is no structure that separates our country from Mexico.”

He rightfully noted some are crossing in search of a better life while others are crossing to avoid consequences and commit crime.

This is a real time example of how the border crisis continues to hurt the American people.

It’s also further proof that we must resume construction on the border wall and finish the job.
