Plan for Secure Borders
After months of
talking with those who live and work along the Texas border and my colleagues in Congress, this past week I introduced border security legislation
called the Building America’s Trust Act.
This bill presents a strategic plan to secure the border focused on three main things: increase resources at our borders,
boost trade through ports of entry, and strengthen enforcement of existing laws.
The Building America’s Trust
Act is endorsed by groups like the Texas Border Sheriff’s Coalition, National Association of Police Organizations, National
Sheriffs’ Association, and the National Border Patrol Council.

It’s time to stop throwing
money at the problem and hoping for the best. This legislation provides a much-needed strategic plan to secure our borders, because Texans know that a
one-size-fits-all solution to border security won’t work.
The federal government needs to regain the public’s confidence when it comes to border security by restoring order and
lawfulness to our immigration system, and the Building America’s Trust Act will help us do just that.
