Jan 25, 2017
Press Release

Washington, DC –  Congressman Lamar Smith (R-TX) issued the following statement today in response to President Donald Trump signing executive orders to enhance border security, provide the necessary personnel and resources to enforce immigration laws, and compel sanctuary cities to comply with the law.

Rep. Smith: “Less than a week after President Trump took office he is honoring his commitment to secure the border. Close to half a million illegal immigrants cross our borders every year. They take jobs away from American workers and reduce the wages of other American workers. They often use government services, which costs American taxpayers. I have long supported efforts to secure our borders and appreciate the President’s efforts to do so.”
