Bipartisan Border Solutions Act
A bipartisan, bicameral proposal to address the crisis at our southern border.
I’ve been to the border countless times to see the impact of this humanitarian and security crisis. Based on what I’ve seen on the ground and heard from Texans experiencing this crisis firsthand, I’ve introduced the Bipartisan Border Solutions Act to:
- Establish at least four new regional processing centers in high-traffic Border Patrol sectors
- Disincentivize migrants with unrealistic asylum claims from coming to the U.S.
- Give Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) additional resources to help them do their jobs, including additional ICE Enforcement and Removal staff, CBP officers, and Border Patrol processing coordinators
- Speed up processing to get Border Patrol back on the front line
- Deter illegal migration while efficiently processing legitimate asylum claims, all while protecting children and allocating resources to organizations at our border
