Earlier this week, President Donald Trump addressed the nation from the Oval Office on border security.

It’s something that is deeply personal for me, I spent 13 years as an ICE Special Agent defending our country against drug traffickers, money launderers, and other dangers. I applaud our President for making national security a priority and I will stand firm with him as your next Michigan Republican Party Chair.

The border crisis results in human trafficking, an influx of illegal drugs, money and criminals. Democrats are willing to exploit this crisis but this isn’t the time to score political points. It’s time to secure the border.

Democrats like Rashida Tlaib, Haley Stevens, Elissa Slotkin, Debbie Stabenow and Gary Peters have all decided to put politics before our nation’s security. I know how important President Trump’s plan is to secure our border, because I’ve done it before. We are a nation of laws and security, and we MUST hold our representatives accountable. 

In 2020, I will make it a priority to ensure we re-elect President Trump, and elect Republican allies for him up and down the ticket—who will support his mission to secure our border.
