We owe them the resources both to do their job effectively and retain the many well-trained agents who serve. It was stunning to see how many people, including unaccompanied children, unlawfully crossed the border during my ride-along last night. Border Patrol agents are concerned about the rapid increase in unaccompanied children, which increased by 62 percent between January and February, as well as the increase in total encounters with unlawful migrants, which surpassed 100,000 in February. Border Patrol agents told me about how unaccompanied children and families are used to divert agents while traffickers move illicit substances like meth and other deadly drugs across the border. We are still early in the year and not yet in the peak season for migrant travel, so we are likely to see continued increases in unlawful immigrants and deadly narcotics at our border unless the Biden administration changes its failed approach,” External link

Rob Portman said : “I appreciated the thorough operational brief at El Paso Sector Headquarters from Chief Patrol Agent Chavez, as well as being able to see the Paso del Norte migrant processing station, and an area near the Monument Three border wall section. It is clear that the Biden administration’s dismantling of the previous administration’s policies with no consideration of the ramifications has incentivized migration, and increased Border Patrol manpower is critical. The Paso del Norte processing facility is seeing an increase in migrants of 150 to 200 percent which is stretching manpower and resources thin. Near the Monument Three border section, I was shocked by the difference between the new wall sections and temporary wall sections left unfinished due to the Biden administration’s executive order. The crisis at our southern border is clear, and I urge the Biden administration to provide Border Patrol with the resources they need while stepping up efforts to collaborate with international partners – including the governments in Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador – to address this challenge, discourage migration, and provide safer alternatives to making the dangerous journey north,” External link

Rob Portman said : “I am deeply troubled by the urgent crisis on our southern border due to the influx of unaccompanied children and Border Patrol’s immediate need for increased support and resources. We are still early in the year and not yet in the peak season for migrant travel, thus we are likely to see increases in unaccompanied children which will continue to divert Border Patrol agents from their national security duties patrolling our border. Hundreds of Border Patrol agents are being pulled out of the field to tend to the thousands of children arriving every day,” “We must address the Biden administration’s policies pulling these children to make a treacherous journey. I look forward to working with my bipartisan colleagues to ensure Border Patrol has the resources it needs as this crisis continues. I urge the Biden administration to address this emergency, secure our border, and ensure the safety of the unaccompanied children” External link

Border Patrol agents are concerned about the rapid increase in unaccompanied children, which increased by 62 percent between January and February, as well as the increase in total encounters with unlawful migrants, which surpassed 100,000 in February. Border Patrol agents told me about how unaccompanied children and families are used to divert agents while traffickers move illicit substances like meth and other deadly drugs across the border.

Rob Portman said : “We must hold countries that violate our trade laws accountable, but we must do so in a way that protects American jobs and strengthens the U.S. economy,” “I originally introduced this bill over concerns regarding the previous administration’s intent to misuse Section 232 statute to impose tariffs on automobiles and auto parts, which would have a devastating impact on Ohio jobs and the U.S. economy as a whole. This bipartisan legislation preserves this trade tool while properly placing the national security designation at the Department of Defense and expanding the role of Congress in the process. As a former U.S. Trade Representative, I know that misusing our trade tools not only hurts our exports and our manufacturers, but also our consumers, so I urge my colleagues to support this bipartisan legislation” External link
