WASHINGTON — Congressman Dan Meuser (PA-09) visited the southern border on Friday, July 19 with members of the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus. Members inspected points of entry, a border patrol station, and a centralized processing center. They also examined the physical U.S.-Mexican border and participated in briefings and discussions with experts on the ground.

“It is an invaluable experience to see the crisis at the southern border firsthand. This visit reaffirmed that our immigration system is flawed, and it is imperative that we act on a bipartisan basis to remedy this crisis,” said Meuser. “Specifically, I recommend that we construct physical border security, enact tougher asylum laws, and locate asylum processing centers in Mexico. Not only are we facing a national security crisis, but we also face a humanitarian crisis. We must work together to deliver results.”
