The security of our southern border is a bipartisan issue that all Americans should be able to get behind. However, the Democrats seem to want to focus on other topics, like hiring thousands of more IRS agents to go after American taxpayers. Well, some Republican politicians have had enough, and have taken action.

A group of Republican Representatives have introduced legislation that would help secure our southern border.
According to the Blaze, Republican House members are pushing a bill to eliminate the IRS funding in the dubiously titled “Inflation Reduction Act” and instead hire new CBP workers to secure America’s southern border.
GOP Rep. Claudia Tenney of New York introduced the bill while GOP Reps. Lance Gooden of Texas, Randy Weber of Texas, Dan Crenshaw of Texas, Pete Stauber of Minnesota, Doug Lamborn of Colorado, Buddy Carter of Georgia, Jay Obernolte of California, Markwayne Mullin of Oklahoma, Steve Chabot of Ohio, Gregory Steube of Florida, and Chris Jacobs of New York each joined the bill as original cosponsors.
Even though the bill doesn’t stand a chance in the Democrat-controlled House, it sends a loud and clear message that our border needs to be attended to immediately.
As we previously reported, over the past three years, the U.S. Border Patrol has encountered three times as many illegal aliens at the U.S.-Mexico border as under former President Donald Trump.
During Biden’s presidency, US Border Patrol (USBP) and Office of Field Operations (OFO) recorded approximately 189,000 encounters per month, compared to just under 51,000 during Trump’s.
Even though the bill introduced by the GOP Reps does not stand a chance, it is important to note that we have leaders willing to bring awareness to real problems that the Democrats fail to care about. The American people notice thism, and that’s one of the reasons why there will be a big red wave this November and in 2024.
