House GOP unveils border security bill:
House Homeland Security Committee Republicans on Monday unveiled border legislation that would require completing the border wall envisioned by former President Trump and would stymy a Biden administration effort to provide legal pathways to the U.S.
The Border Reinforcement Act is one of the first major pieces of legislation from the panel, rolled out days after another Republican-led effort to limit asylum.
The bill requires resuming construction of the border wall for at least 900 miles — a Trump-era goal that President Biden largely nixed the funding for.
It also takes aim at a new Biden administration program that allows those from Venezuela, Haiti, Nicaragua and Cuba to apply to come to the U.S. through an app so long as they can secure a U.S.-based sponsor.
Until recently, the four countries were responsible for some of the highest levels of migration at the border, and the Biden administration has touted the program as one of the ways to alleviate pressure at the border by giving those most likely to seek asylum a way to secure temporary entrance legally. --->READ MORE HERE

House Homeland Security Committee introduces bill to restart border walll
Republicans on the House Homeland Security Committee announced a border security bill Monday that would require the Biden administration to immediately resume building former President Donald Trump’s border wall.
The legislation also would direct the Border Patrol to add roughly 2,000 more agents to its ranks and would squelch the administration’s attempt to harness a border-crossing phone app into a key tool in President Biden’s new catch-and-release program.
Rep. Mark Green, chairman of the committee, said the bill will deliver “real border security solutions” at a time when they are desperately needed.
“This legislation demands transparency from DHS and ensures CBP and border states have the infrastructure, personnel, and technology needed to take back control of our sovereign borders,” the Tennessee Republican said. “It’s time to put the cartels in their place and put the protection of our communities first.”
He said the bill was written based on the ideas lawmakers gleaned from Border Patrol agents and, in particular, Border Patrol Chief Raul Ortiz, who testified to the committee this year. --->READ MORE HERE
