US Senators Udall, Heinrich Introduce Smart Measures To Enhance Safety In Remote Border Areas 12 Tuesday Feb 2019

If all this is going on on the southern border imagine what’s going on on the Canadian border.. LOL  😋👀😜

WASHINGTON — Today, U.S. Senators Tom Udall (D-N.M.) and Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.) introduced three key proposals to address the needs in remote areas of the nation’s southern border region and invest in our southern ports of entry to increase international trade and bolster economic development in border communities.

As congressional negotiators continue to work on a path forward for funding border security measures and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) through the end of the fiscal year, Heinrich and Udall want to make smart investments in our border region. As the February 15 deadline approaches to reach a deal to prevent another lapse in federal funding, President Trump has threatened to shut down the government again or unilaterally declare a national emergency if he is not satisfied with an agreement reached on border security.

”President Trump has never been interested in responsible border security policies that would help us build a safer and more prosperous border region. Instead of wasting billions of dollars on a border wall that New Mexicans don’t want or need, we should make smart, responsible investments,” said Heinrich. “I am proud to introduce pragmatic proposals that address the gaps in the border security debate and reflect the realities of our border communities.”
