Washington, D.C.— Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today released the following statement on President Trump’s executive orders on immigration and border security:  


“It’s long past time that we take control of our border, and the best way to do that is to build a wall. We also can’t expect other people to follow our laws if we don’t enforce them ourselves. These executive orders are simply common sense, and they have my full support. But we must do more. Congress should build on this work by creating an immigration system that boosts our economy and promotes the interests of the American people.”
