"The crisis along our nation’s Southern border will only continue unless we actively work with our allies in Central America to find shared solutions"

WASHINGTON, DC – Following his August visit to the Northern Triangle, U.S. Representative Will Hurd (TX-23) today met with Salvadoran Ambassador to the U.S. Claudia Canjura to continue discussing shared challenges and identify areas for collaboration regarding mass migration, border security, human trafficking, violence and transnational crime. After his meeting, Rep. Hurd released the following statement:

“The crisis along our nation’s Southern border will only continue unless we actively work with our allies in Central America to find shared solutions to combat human trafficking, drug smuggling and illegal immigration,” said Hurd, who represents more of the U.S.-Mexico border than any other Member of Congress. “Our current challenges along the border not only jeopardize our national security, but also impact the daily lives of thousands of good folks I represent in the 23rd District of Texas. I appreciate Ambassador Canjura for working with me to determine root causes and identify shared solutions as I continue to work with my colleagues in Congress to secure our borders with smart solutions.”
