Jordan calls for securing U.S. borders in advance of Trump border visit

August 22, 2017
In advance of President Trump's visit to the U.S./Mexico border today, Congressman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) made the following comments:

"Today President Trump will visit the U.S./Mexico border and reaffirm his commitment to securing our border. Under President Trump, the number of people trying to enter the U.S. illegally has dropped significantly. But we need to do more. I agree with the president that secure borders are a vital part of our national security. For the good of our country, Congress should include border wall funding in government funding legislation this fall. It's what we ran on – we need to fulfill that promise."
