Pryce Statement on President’s
Washington, DC -- Congresswoman Deborah Pryce (R-Upper Arlington) issued the following statement in reaction to the President’s national address outlining his plan to use National Guard personnel to temporarily assist Customs and Border Protection agents with border enforcement:
“I was encouraged by the President’s address tonight. Illegal immigration is a border security issue, a homeland security issue and a national security issue. First and foremost we need to secure the border, and I am pleased to hear the President outline ideas that will do just that.
“While the President’s efforts to shore up our borders are important, illegal immigration impacts every facet of our society – security, education, social services, and health care. It is therefore of profound importance to America that Congress put partisan politics aside to move quickly, yet thoughtfully, and pass a final reform package.”
