Carter Cosponsors Bill to Build President Trump's Border Wall

Congressman Earl L. "Buddy" Carter (R-Ga.) released the following statement after cosponsoring legislation to build President Trump's border wall and combat sanctuary cities, violent illegal aliens and gangs. 

"I have been to the Southwest border and I have seen the threats we face firsthand. There is much more than just illegal aliens coming across our borders. It is critical to our national security that we secure our border while addressing the threats already in our country like dangerous sanctuary cities and violent gangs. 

"This legislation works to combat these threats and accomplish our most important duty to provide for the common defense. I urge my colleagues to bring this bill to a vote as soon as possible to support the safety of our communities."

The Build the Wall, Enforce the Law Act fully funds the southern border wall. It also includes important provisions to make communities safer by stopping the flow of federal grant money to sanctuary cities, making alien gang membership grounds for deportation, and requiring ICE to address undocumented immigrants who are charged with a violent crime resulting in serious injury or death.
