Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Congressman Pete Sessions (R-TX), Chairman of the House Rules Committee, issued the following statement in response to the Trump Administration’s decision to send additional active duty troops to aid in the defense of our southern border:

“The selfless men and women tasked with patrolling our southern border have already seen a record-breaking number of immigrants attempting to illegally enter our state and nation. Resources are stretched thin and the incoming surge of migrants from Central America will not make this dangerous job any easier. I am glad to see the Administration direct these skilled members of our Armed Forces to assist in the necessary effort to secure our borders and keep our Texas communities safe.”
