Securing Our Borders
She serves as the Co-Chair of the Northern Border Caucus and is a leading voice promoting strong partnership with our Canadian neighbors while continuing to secure our northern border.
Securing Our Borders
Elise believes that we must address the catastrophic crisis at our southern border. The Biden Border Crisis has allowed record numbers of illegal immigrants to pour across the southern border. Since the beginning of Joe Biden’s Presidency, over 3.5 million illegals have been apprehended at our southern border.
Elise opposes amnesty and does not support voting rights or driver’s licenses for illegal immigrants and has advocated against expanding the flow of illegal immigrants into our country. Elise has pushed Congress to tighten our borders while improving our legal immigration system. In 2021, Elise introduced legislation that would require the Inspector General of the Department of Homeland Security to investigate the vetting and processing of illegal immigrants who are apprehended at the southern border to help ensure that the law is being upheld.
Elise has also worked to implement common sense measures to fix our broken immigration system. She supports bipartisan reforms to provide our border patrol officers with the resources they need to secure our borders and protect our nation.
She serves as the Co-Chair of the Northern Border Caucus and is a leading voice promoting strong partnership with our Canadian neighbors while continuing to secure our northern border. She also signed a letter urging the secretary of the Department of Homeland Security against transferring staff away from the northern border, and she recently signed a letter to the House Committee on Appropriations advocating for over 1,500 new Customs and Border Patrol staff positions along the northern border. Our CBP officers must have the resources that they need to do their jobs and keep us safe. Elise will continue to fight for funding for northern border infrastructure and staffing to boost U.S.-Canadian commerce while ensuring our border security.
