McAllen, TX — Today, Congressman Doug Lamborn (CO-05) visited the southern border to meet with Border Patrol Agents and review national security needs. He issued the following statement regarding the event:

"I visited the southern border today for two reasons: First, to get a first-hand look at the crisis facing our national security. Second, to hear directly from Border Patrol Agents about their needs in order to do their jobs well. My conclusion is that not only the Agents but our country needs the assets that President Trump has called for. President Trump has stood strong on border security and has a common sense approach. As Speaker Nancy Pelosi leads the Democrats in opposition of national security, I call on her to fully support the president in his fight to protect our border and enact a safer system of immigration."
