ICYMI: Rogers Tours Border with POTUS
Rogers, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), and Reps. Chuck Fleischmann (R-Tenn.), Ken Calvert (R-Calif.), Doug LaMalfa (R-Calif.), and Tom McClintock (R-Calif.), discussed the border crisis with President Trump aboard Air Force One.
WASHINGTON – House Homeland Security Ranking Member Mike Rogers (R-Ala.) traveled with President Donald Trump on Air Force One to Calexico, California on Friday.
“What I saw confirmed what we’ve already known for years: the situation at our southwest border poses grave national security and humanitarian threats,” Rogers said. “President Trump has called on Congress to act. It’s time for Democrats to put politics aside so we can truly address the crisis at the border.”
Rogers joined Trump for a roundtable on immigration and border security and toured a new section of the border wall system with the president.
Afterward, Rogers and Border Patrol Chief Carla Provost took an aerial tour of the border.
