AUSTIN— Today, the Texas Public Policy Foundation’s Right on Immigration project published the paper, Border Security: An Assessment of the Metrics.
“The ability to quantify what a secure border looks like is essential for maintaining the sovereignty and national security of the United States,” said Igor Magalhaes, legislative fellow with the Texas Public Policy Foundation. “In order to make informed decisions on the performance of immigration enforcement agencies, elected officials need metrics that clearly identify what a secure border means. Such metrics will also help the American people hold their government accountable for carrying out one of its core responsibilities—protecting the nation’s borders. However, adopting long-standing metrics that properly measure the most consequential aspects of border security has proven problematic.”
