Statement on Senate Action on Legislation To Strengthen Border Security and Urging Action on Immigration Legislation,
April 18, 2002

Improving our Nation’s border security is vital to protecting Americans from future terrorist attacks. I commend the Senate for passing legislation that strengthens border security and gives our law enforcement officials additional tools to secure our homeland. I look forward to Congress sending me this important legislation as soon as possible so that I can sign it into law.

I also continue to urge Congress to act to strengthen families and make America more welcoming. Congress should pass a temporary extension under 245(i) so that immigrants eligible to become legal residents will not be forced to leave the country and their families to have their immigration status resolved.

Note: The Office of the Press Secretary also released this statement in Spanish.
