Abraham: Trump right about border crisis

January 8, 2019
Press Release

WASHINGTON - Congressman Ralph Abraham, M.D., R-Alto, issued the following statement in response to President Trump's address to the nation regarding the urgent need for increased border security:

"President Trump is on point and on target: This is both a humanitarian and national security crisis. Women and children are being harmed and killed daily by the human traffickers. More than 90 percent of the heroin and meth comes through the southern border, and these drugs are killing 300 Americans a week. Thousands of criminals, terrorists, and gang members have been arrested, but some slip through without a wall to stop them. Republicans and President Trump want to stop the madness taking place on the border. Why won’t the Democrats help? Walls work!" Dr. Abraham said.
