Today, the Texas Public Policy Foundation is pleased to announce that in less than 2 years since its founding, the TPPF-led Border Security Coalition has tripled in size, growing into a diverse roster of state and national civic leaders, border security experts and anti-human trafficking activists . In recent months, the Coalition has added to its membership several former members of Congress, former Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Chad Wolf and America First Policy Institute’s Director of Homeland Security and Immigration John Zadrozny.

Now at 40 members, the coalition has collaborated to put a spotlight on the growing crisis at the southern border and solutions, including through visits to various sectors of the U.S.-Mexico border, meetings with local stakeholders and advocacy of continued southern border wall construction, among other measures. The Coalition has paid particular attention to the victims of irresponsible border management policies, as is evidenced in the latest TPPF video on the subject, based upon the Coalition’s June 2021 visit to the Del Rio sector of the border.

“As immigration experts continue to affirm the severity of the Biden-engineered border crisis, it’s more important than ever that our Coalition continue to grow, bringing together problem solvers to offer up substantive solutions,” said Kevin Roberts, TPPF’s Chief Executive Officer. “We are thrilled with the ever-growing influence our Coalition has, and we will continue to press on for policies that secure the U.S.-Mexico border.”

“With illegal immigration spiraling out of control and causing a cascade of negative impacts across the country, the need for effective security and deterrence along our southern border has never been clearer,” said Rebecca Weber, Chief Executive Officer, Association of Mature American Citizens and the newest member of the coalition. “I am proud to join my colleagues on the Border Security Coalition as we focus the attention of Americans on solving this problem, which includes putting a stop to the trafficking of both humans and illicit drugs.”
