Perry Responds to Border Policy

Washington, D.C.- Congressman Scott Perry offered the following response to U.S. policy at the southern border: 

“We must remain a kind and humanitarian country to those who seek freedom, but we’re also a sovereign nation with laws that ultimately determine how we can best control our borders and protect our people. Poor policies from previous administrations have encouraged and exacerbated illegal activities on our borders that hurt our children daily and erode our ability to protect them and our American way of life. While illegal activities on our borders that exploit children and our resources aren’t new, the enforcement of our laws is; and while the laws are enforced, we must do everything we can to ensure that all children are being cared for with the goal of reaching the best possible long-term outcomes.”
