    H.R. 2, the Secure the Border Act of 2023:The Biden administration’s open-border policies have led to an unprecedented national security and humanitarian crisis at our southern border.

    For more than two years, President Biden and Democrats in Congress have ignored this crisis.House Republicans made tackling this border crisis a central component of our Commitment to America.

    That’s why H.R. 2, the Secure the Border Act of 2023, fulfills our promise to the American people to deliver solutions to a crisis that affects not just cities and states along the border – but every city and state across the country. H.R. 2 has two fundamental goals:

    1 Secure the border

    2 Combat illegal immigration

    The tireless work of the House Republican Conference has resulted in the introduction of the “Secure the Border Act of 2023.”

    This legislation, introduced by Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (FL-25) and Congressman Tom McClintock (CA-05), reflects the diligent work of members across the House Republican conference and regular order through multiple committees.

    The legislation will:

    Force the Biden Administration to restart construction of the border wall

    Deploy technology to the southern and northern border

    Increase the number of Border Patrol agents and provide bonus pay

    Require transparency regarding illegal crossings from the Department of Homeland Security

    Strengthen current law to protect unaccompanied children from human trafficking

    End catch and release

    End abuse of executive immigration authority

    Strengthen and streamline the asylum process

    Sponsored by Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart and Rep.

    Tom McClintockText of the bill HERE.

    How we got here The Biden administration has been defined by the multiple crises it has created.

    Nowhere is that more obvious than the crisis at the southern border. Upon taking office in January 2021, President Biden immediately halted wall construction on the southern border, paying contractors to not build wall, leaving over 150 miles of planned border wall left unbuilt, and materials left to rust in the desert; undercut Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) efforts by prohibiting agents from carrying out deportations; and took immediate steps to end the Migrant Protection Protocols.

    Since these disastrous policies were imposed, the Biden administration has turned its back on the border crisis. The results speak for themself.

    The Biden administration has established a reckless processing scheme that has resulted in the mass trafficking of unaccompanied alien children.

    According to the New York Times, this administration has lost over 85,000 children that they, under law, have the responsibility of caring for.

    The administration continuously ignored warnings from whistleblowers that their process was fatally flawed and endangering children.

    They proceeded, nonetheless. In addition, they conceded that there would be a surge to the border once Title 42 was lifted on May 11.

    In reality, the surge is already here. Over the past week, communities up and down the southern border were subject to a new rapid influx of illegal entries, while the effects of the surge were seen in cities far from the border.

    During the 117th Congress alone, over 140 members of the House Republican Conference visited the border to see the crisis first-hand and thank the men and women of the U.S. Border Patrol.

    In stark contrast, President Biden has visited the southern border just once in his entire half-century career in Washington. The administration has not taken any meaningful action to secure the border since taking office in January 2021.

    To the contrary, time and again, they have taken purposeful actions to make it worse. House Republicans will take action to secure the border and restore the rule of law. This is our commitment to America

    Higgins Issues Statement On Secure The Border Act Of 2023

    May 3, 2023

    Press Release

    WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Clay Higgins (R-LA) released the following statement on the introduction of H.R. 2, the Secure the Border Act of 2023.

    Congressman Higgins is an original co-sponsor and had a role in crafting the House Homeland Security Committee portion of the legislation.

    “Since Biden was inaugurated, we’ve lost operational control of our southern border. The cartels have outmaneuvered Mayorkas, millions of illegals continue to cross into our country, fentanyl is flooding across our border, and the Biden DHS policies have escaped accountability.

    This is not just a humanitarian crisis, it is a policy crisis.

    The mishandling of our border has brought generational trauma upon this great nation, and We, The People, demand law and order at our southern border.”

    “Under the Republican Majority, we have worked tirelessly to ensure that this legislation rolls back the harm that this administration has forced upon this country with their open-border policies.

    America deserves effective border security. We will continue to uphold our commitment to secure our southern border, and this legislation is an important factor in restoring our sovereignty.”

    Chairmen Jordan, Green, and McCaul Statement on H.R. 2, the Secure the Border Act of 2023

    May 2, 2023

    Press Release

    WASHINGTON, D.C. – House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH), House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Mark Green (R-TN), and House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Michael McCaul (R-TX) released the following statement after the introduction of H.R. 2, the Secure the Border Act of 2023


    "For more than two years, President Biden and Secretary Mayorkas have watched our southwest border fall into the hands of violent cartels and stood by as their own open-border policies allowed the crisis to metastasize to our northern and maritime borders.

    This chaos has pushed our Border Patrol agents to the brink, forcing them to work endless hours with no support. But those on the frontlines know this is not just a humanitarian crisis, it is a policy crisis.

    As the end of Title 42 approaches, it is clear the Biden Administration’s plan is to continue funding border mismanagement instead of border security.

    "After announcing our border security framework almost one year ago, our committees have put forth legislation to roll back the harm this administration has caused our country. From supporting the dedicated men and women of our Border Patrol and investing in technology to ending this administration's reckless catch-and-release policies and seeking to renegotiate proven policies like Remain in Mexico and the Asylum Cooperative Agreements, the Secure the Border Act does exactly what the title says.

    Now, it is time to uphold our commitment by passing the Secure the Border Act on the House floor."
