Press Release

WASHINGTON – Congressman Bruce Westerman (AR-04) issued the following statement Wednesday (June 7) upon passage of H.R. 2213, the Anti-Border Corruption Reauthorization Act:

“Border security in the United States is one of our most critical current issues, but our border security is dangerously understaffed,” Westerman said. “The ability to fast-track the employment of vetted law enforcement officers into the Border Patrol is vital to meeting its staffing needs. It is my hope that this bill allows veterans and law enforcement officers to continue their service while securing our southern border.”
