Bergman Continues Fight to Secure Southern Border
Washington, May 12, 2023
Rep. Jack Bergman released the following statement after voting in support of H.R. 2, the Secure the Border Act:
"Yesterday, I voted in favor of H.R. 2, the Secure the Border Act. As Title 42 expires, our border patrol agents are encountering over 10,000 migrants a day and releasing hundreds of undocumented (illegal) immigrants a day into communities. The best time to secure our border was years ago, the next best time is today."
Bergman continued, "We are, and always must be, a welcoming Nation. But we must use every tool at our disposal to have a secure border and clear processes to ensure those coming to our country are documented and do things legally."
