West Palm Beach, FL – Today, Jeff Greene, the Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate, issued the following statement regarding President Obama signing the $600 million Border Security Bill into law.
“I applaud President Obama for his bold leadership in strengthening our nation’s security.
“These resources will help stop the flow of illegal immigration into our country, and it’s a step in the right direction toward addressing the critical problem of illegal immigration.
“I wholeheartedly support the President on this effort and as U.S. Senator I will work with legislators to pass comprehensive immigration reform.”
The measure will fund the hiring of 1,000 new Border Patrol agents to be deployed at critical areas along the border, as well as more Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents. It also provides for new communications equipment and greater use of unmanned surveillance drones. [Associated Press, 08/13/10]
