Miller Votes to Secure Southern Border

WASHINGTON – Congressman Max Miller, R-Rocky River, today voted for the Secure Our Border Act, a bill that takes broad and meaningful action to end the crisis at the US-Mexico border. The bill passed the House of Representatives on Thursday afternoon.

Miller spoke in support of the bill during debate Wednesday night.

“Joe Biden’s border policies have allowed millions of people to illegally enter our country. Drug cartels, gangs, human traffickers, and terrorists exploit the crisis to harm Americans. Republican leadership secured the border just a short while ago, and by passing this bill, Republicans are showing once again that we will act when Biden will not,” said Miller.

The Secure Our Border Act:

  • Resumes construction of the border wall.
  • Provides for the addition of 22,000 Border Patrol agents to enforce our border laws.
  • Establishes retention bonuses for frontline Border Patrol agents.
  • Bolsters local law enforcement jurisdictions along land and maritime borders by providing increased support through Operation Stonegarden grants.
  • Requires the Department of Homeland Security to disclose to Congress and the public all monthly data, including known getaways, which are not currently public.
  • Requires Customs and Border Patrol to develop a technology investment plan and upgrade existing technology.
