Kiley Acts to Secure Southern Border
Washington, D.C. (5/11/2023) – “Securing the border isn’t something we should have to insist upon, and shouldn’t be a partisan issue. It is a basic responsibility of government. Yet the Biden Administration has neglected this basic responsibility unlike any Administration in history, with devastating consequences. Today’s ‘Secure the Border Act’ provides the tools necessary to get this crisis under control.” – Congressman Kevin Kiley
Background: Fentanyl has wrought devastating consequences on communities across the country, including in Rep. Kiley’s community of Rocklin, and has become as the leading cause of death for young adults in the United States. According to the Biden Administration’s own Drug Enforcement Agency, the vast majority of the fentanyl killing tens of thousands of Americans annually is originating south of the border. Securing the Southern Border is paramount to addressing the fentanyl crisis and H.R. 2, the ‘Secure the Border Act,’ takes significant steps in accomplishing exactly that.
