Press Release


PINE BLUFF, Arkansas – Congressman Bruce Westerman (AR-04) issued the following statement Tuesday (August 22) in support of President Donald J. Trump’s visit to the southern border at Yuma, Arizona:

"Our nation's southern border has lacked necessary security and control for too long,” Westerman said. “I have toured the border first hand and will be making additional trips. While the brave men and women of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection do an outstanding job with the resources at their disposal, they are unable to prevent the immense flow of illegal immigrants, deadly narcotics, and illicit contraband from pouring into our country. President Trump today proved he is serious about securing our borders and protecting American citizens at home. I applaud his efforts and pledge to continue working with him in the months and years to come as we bring real security and control to our southern border."
