Owens Votes Yes On the Secure the Border Act of 2023

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Rep. Burgess Owens (UT-04) released the following statement applauding the passage of H.R. 2, the Secure the Border Act of 2023. 

“When Title 42 ends tonight, our southern border goes from crisis to catastrophe. 24 months ago, President Biden inherited a secure border. On this administration’s watch, we lost operational control, enriched the cartels, and had over 5 million people cross into our country illegally. While Congressional Democrats bury their heads in the sand, House Republicans are stepping up to solve Biden’s Border Crisis. 

“The Secure the Border Act – the strongest border security package in history – finishes the wall, ends catch and release, increases the number of Border Patrol agents, halts the flow of deadly fentanyl, protects innocent children from human traffickers, and puts the safety of the American people first.”
