Dear Colleague,


Our immigration system continues to have vulnerabilities that have been ignored for far too long.


Thankfully, the incoming administration has made securing our borders and strengthening our immigration process a top priority – a priority I know you and your constituents share.


In order to help secure the southern border, I introduced H.R. 4391, the Finish the Fence Act, which directs the Secretary of Homeland Security to complete the required 700-mile fence along our southwest border by the end of this
calendar year.


This is not only an issue of illegal immigrants crossing our porous border; it is also an issue of national security. ISIS is looking for every possible opportunity and weakness within our security systems to infiltrate and radicalize
individuals in joining its jihadist regimes to kill Americans, including recruiting and training those illegally crossing our border and entering our country.


Please join with me in making our nation more secure by cosponsoring this critical legislation.


Should you have any questions about this bill or would like to be added as a cosponsor, please contact Melissa Robel in my office at 5-1252 or
