Hern applauds passage of the Secure the Border Act

WASHINGTON, DC – Representative Kevin Hern (OK-01) released the following statement after voting in favor of HR 2, the Secure the Border Act.

“Unlike our President, I’ve been to the Southern border to see the disastrous impact of his failure to address the border crisis,” said Rep. Hern. “Today, we passed the strongest border security measure the House of Representatives has ever seen. It couldn’t be more timely with the expiration of Title 42 tonight. This bill is a promise fulfilled to the American people. While the President continues to ignore the problem and gaslight the public into thinking he cares about it, his Administration has caused more long-term damage to the security of our nation than any president in history. I’m proud of the work our conservative majority has done to get this bill to the floor!”
