“Our Customs and Border Protection agents are still working overtime to combat the record-high illegal crossings at our southern border,”said Congressman Higgins. “The crisis that Biden and Mayorkas have created is an unmitigated disaster. Now more than ever, we need to ensure that our border and ports of entry are fully staffed with qualified personnel who can keep our nation safe.”
