Robert Hurt statement on House bill addressing border crisis

Robert_HurtCongressman Robert Hurt (R-Virginia) released the following statement after voting in favor of H.R. 5230 and H.R. 5272, which address the current immigration crisis at our southern border:

“There is no denying that we face a crisis at our southern border as thousands have streamed into our country illegally, overwhelming our nation’s resources and often endangering the lives of the young children who make the illegal journey.  This crisis is largely attributable to our country’s failure to secure our border and refusal to adhere to our immigration laws under the leadership of our president, who chooses to undermine both our border security and the rule of law – policies that invite the poor and the desperate from foreign countries to cross our borders illegally – making this a crisis of his own creation.

“The bills passed by the House tonight seek to address the root causes of the crisis and stop the flow of illegal border crossings by giving targeted resources to bolster our border security personnel, allowing border states to deploy the National Guard, and implementing meaningful reforms that will discourage, rather than encourage, illegal migration.  I call on our colleagues in the Senate and the White House to join us in embracing an immigration policy rooted in the rule of law, put an end to illegal immigration, and repair our broken legal migration system.”
