WASHINGTON, D.C. — Representative Marsha Blackburn (TN-7th District) issued the following statement today in reaction to news reports that the U.S. government is releasing information on the Minutemen border patrols to the Mexican government.
“It’s incredibly frustrating that our government would be willing and able to release information to the Mexican government on Minutemen patrols yet unable to adequately deter illegal entry into this country. I want to see a border wall or technology improvements that would halt illegal border crossing. There is incredible consensus among Tennesseans that enough is enough on this issue. We’ve passed a House bill to tackle this issue and the Senate needs to act on that. We can all agree that border security is a priority issue for Americans and I would hope we see progress soon.”
