Louisiana will soon welcome President Donald Trump for a visit to Sempra Energy’s Cameron LNG Export Facility. With over $100 billion in announced energy projects and $65 billion in projects already underway, Southwest Louisiana has a story worth sharing.
Make no mistake, there is a crisis on our southern border.
President Trump is well within his legal rights to declare a national emergency. The illegal flow of humans, drugs, and criminal activity threaten the very fabric of our nation. For too long, America has neglected its responsibility to enforce our sovereign borders.
