WASHINGTON, DC - The crisis at the border is completely out of control, and the Biden Administration continues to ignore the situation. It's time to stop pretending this crisis will fix itself and take action to ensure the safety and security of all Americans. With border encounters at a 21-year high, Biden's border crisis is clearly only getting worse and putting the DHS workforce, support staff, and local border communities at significant health risk.
Today, Homeland Security Republicans released the latest edition of the 'Startling Stats' fact sheet, detailing new data on the crisis at the southwest border.

Ranking Member Katko, along with Homeland Security Committee Republicans and House Republican leadership, introduced the Border Security for America Act of 2021 (H.R. 4828), which would secure our borders by resuming construction of the border wall system, deploying effective technology, and placing more boots on the ground. The legislation earned the support of the National Border Patrol Council, which represents approximately 18,000 Border Patrol Agents and support personnel.
