Due to the partial shutdown and the Democrats refusal to compromise with President Trump, our phone lines have been ringing off the hook and the emails have been zinging into the inbox.
The overwhelming majority of you have made it clear: BUILD THE WALL and build it now.  My office has received hundreds of calls and thousands of letters on securing the border and the overwhelming majority, over 80%, want the wall built and our border secure. And for good reason. Yuma saw a 90 percent decrease in apprehensions of illegal aliens at the border after they built a wall. 

The statistics are worth repeating:

  • 90% of the heroin in our country flows through our porous southern border
  • 50 percent increase in family units arriving in 2018 
    • First time in the history of United States family units and children make up the majority of apprehensions 
  • In the last two years alone, ICE officers made 266,000 arrests of aliens with criminal records. Including those charged or convicted of 100,000 assaults and nearly 30,000 sex crimes.
  • 68% of migrants and refugees are victims of violence along the journey
    • 1 out of 3 women sexually assaulted 

When listening to the open border left discuss the much-needed border wall, they often whine that the wall will not work. They cite no facts or figures that walls do not work, nor can they, since the reality is far different. The data shows that anywhere we have built walls we have seen a massive drop in illegal crossings – usually by 90% or more.

  • Tucson (built in 2000): Apprehensions of illegal aliens crossing the border dropped 90% over 15 years
  • Yuma (built in 2005): Apprehensions of illegal aliens crossing the border dropped 95% over 9 years 
  • San Diego (built in 1992): Apprehensions of illegal aliens crossing the border dropped 92% over the past 23 years
  • El Paso (built in 1993):  Apprehensions of illegal aliens crossing the border dropped 72% in one year and 95% over 22 years
President Trump has put a plan on the table to secure our border. I’ve proudly joined my colleagues in House Freedom Caucus in calling on the House to stay in session until we have a deal. Democrats have offered zero alternative plans to secure our border.
