Yesterday, Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC) and the Republican members of the Senate Judiciary Committee introduced a Senate resolution commending the men and women of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection for their honorable service.
- Commends the men and women of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, including Border Patrol personnel, Office of Field Operations personnel, Air and Marine Operations personnel, Office of Trade personnel, and all support personnel and their allies for their continued honorable service during the challenging humanitarian crisis at the Southern border; and
- Calls on Congress to pass legislation to support U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers and to manage the increasing flow of migrants attempting to enter the United States.
The resolution was introduced by Chairman Graham and also co-sponsored by Senators Chuck Grassley (R-IA), John Cornyn (R-TX), Mike Lee (R-UT), Ted Cruz (R-TX), Ben Sasse (R-NE), Josh Hawley (R-MO), Joni Ernst (R-IA), Mike Crapo (R-ID), John Kennedy (R-LA), and Marsha Blackburn (R-TN).
"When I visited the southern border earlier this month, I saw the dedication and professionalism of the men and women of CBP first-hand," said Senator Tillis. "It's evident that in the midst of the current humanitarian and security crisis at the border, the rank and file professionals of CBP are being overworked and underappreciated. I'm proud to co-introduce this resolution honoring these men and women and thank them for their service to our country."
