Young Votes for Border Security

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Todd Young (R-Ind.) today voted to protect the border and preserve President Trump’s national emergency declaration. Just last month, 76,000 illegal immigrants were apprehended or deemed inadmissible at a port of entry on our southern border; that is not counting those who crossed undetected. We are on track for 900,000 apprehensions this year – greater than the entire population of Indianapolis.

“As a U.S. Marine, I was stationed on the southern border in Yuma, Arizona. I saw firsthand the need for greater border security,” said Senator Young. “We must address the situation taking place along our southern border where illegal crossings and smugglers trafficking drugs and people have created a humanitarian and national security crisis.”

Earlier this week, Senator Young joined Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah) and 13 other Senators to introduce the ARTICLE ONE Act, which would enhance future oversight of the emergency declaration process. Click here to learn more about the bill.
