CALAIS, Maine – Following the news of Houlton Sector Border Patrol agents making an arrest of an individual for illegally entering the United States from Canada near Calais, Congressman Bruce Poliquin (ME-02), a member of the Northern Border Caucus, released the following statement:
“Thank you to the men and women of our Border Patrol who work to keep Maine safe. As a member of the Northern Border Caucus, I’m proud to support all those who protect our homeland,” said Congressman Poliquin.
“As the opioid epidemic continues to devastate families throughout Maine, we need to strengthen our border security, help shut down the flow of drugs into our country, and make meaningful reforms to our immigration system. It’s unconscionable that some are pushing to eliminate ICE and take away resources from our men and women who protect our borders.”
