WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Cynthia Lummis (R-WY) joined Senator Jim Inhofe (R-OK) to introduce the WALL Act, which would fully fund the completion of the wall on our southern border. The bill identifies specific funding sources to use to complete the wall, making sure it will not raise taxes on the people of Wyoming.
“The Biden administration’s approach to border security is a complete dereliction of duty,” Senator Lummis said. “Telling migrants not to come while simultaneously halting construction of the border wall and reportedly considering checks for illegal immigrants sends the message that our borders are open and our laws are moot. It’s time to finish construction of the southern border wall and enforce our immigration laws. That must be goal number one as we look at the problems in our immigration system. I thank Senator Inhofe for his leadership on this issue.”
“Over the past year, we’ve seen an unprecedented number of illegal immigrants pour into the country, and the Biden administration’s inability or unwillingness to secure our border from the flow of drugs and dangerous criminals is a growing threat to our national security,” said Inhofe. “I’ve always said: border security is national security, and to have a secure border, we need to build a wall. That’s why I have reintroduced the WALL Act. We’re going to build the wall through concrete reforms that protect the integrity of Oklahoman’s tax dollars and address the crisis that President Biden and the Democrats have worsened.”
