Harry Teague on Immigration

 


Tighten borders & provide path to citizenship

Weak borders are threatened borders. That’s why I will fight to strengthen our borders by tightening our security and reducing the amount of illegal immigration to our country. I’ll fight to increase funding for both personnel and technology.

Provide a Path to Citizenship: Our government must provide a comprehensive pathway to citizenship that would allow for these individuals to learn English, pay back taxes, pass background checks, and pay a fine.

Expand border security on Mexican border.

Teague signed Border Violence Prevention Act

    To authorize additional resources for the Department of Homeland Security to enhance security activities along the international border with Mexico. Expand border security operations along the southwest border, including the southbound inspection and investigation of vehicles, to reduce the potential for border violence; enhance border security; and prevent the illicit flow of arms and bulk cash across such southwest border; by appropriating $70,000,000 to:
  1. increase southbound border security infrastructure and inspection capabilities at ports of entry located on the southwest border between the US and Mexico;
  2. acquire and deploy at least two x-ray mobile inspection units to such southwest border;
  3. acquire and deploy at least ten dual detection canine teams to such southwest border;
  4. equip with license plate readers the outbound lanes at ports of entry located on such southwest border;
  5. acquire and equip US Customs and Border Protection personnel with body armor;
  6. take any other related actions to expand border security operations on such southwest border.
  7. hire and deploy at least 100 additional US Immigration and Customs Enforcement personnel to be assigned to Border Enforcement Security Taskforce (BEST) units involved in efforts to reduce southwest border violence over the number of such personnel so assigned as of the date of the enactment of this Act;
  8. improve existing Border Enforcement Security Taskforce facilities and acquire new space for Border Enforcement Security Taskforce units along such southwest border locations; and
  9. increase resources and personnel for Operation Armas Cruzadas over the resources obligated and personnel so assigned as of the date of the enactment of this Act
