Hoeven Statement on President Trump's Executive Orders on Border Security

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven today issued the following statement in response to President Donald Trump’s executive orders on border security:

“Americans want a secure border. That means not only a wall, but also enough border patrol agents and technology to make sure that the border is secure. We also need mandatory e-verify, as well as entry and exit systems at all our international airports and seaports.

“The president also took action to ensure that we enforce the laws of the land and hold sanctuary cities accountable when they disregard federal immigration laws. We need to ensure that our laws, immigration and all others, are obeyed and enforced. Today's actions are designed to keep America safe.”
