NumberUSA declares Brooks best congressman on border security

Congressman Mo Brooks speaking on the House floor.

NumbersUSA, America’s largest grassroots border security organization graded Congressman Mo Brooks, R-Huntsville, No. 1 for border security in all of the U.S. Congress.

“NumbersUSA is the premier grassroots border security advocacy organization in America,” Brooks said. “I thank them for helping the public know which members of Congress fight to protect American lives, property, jobs and incomes from the current flood of illegal aliens.”

“Americans regularly rank border security as America’s most important issue,” Brooks continued. “Rightfully so. The tsunami of cheap illegal alien labor steals jobs and wages from hard-working and struggling American families. Worse yet, America’s porous southern border causes the deaths of 30,000+ Americans every single year (from illegal alien homicides and overdoses on poisonous drugs shipped across our porous southern border).”

“It is abundantly clear that America’s open-borders advocates put their lust for political power above the interests of the American people,” Brooks concluded. “There is simply no amount of American blood on their hands that causes these callous politicians to stop betraying America, secure America’s borders, and save American jobs, incomes and lives. In 2010, I promised to do everything I can to secure America’s borders. I have kept my promise. But, don’t take my word for it. Take the word of America’s premier border security grassroots organization, NumbersUSA. NumbersUSA has examined Congress’s border security records and, year after year, concluded that no one in Congress fights harder than Mo Brooks to secure America’s porous borders.”

Brooks scored a perfect 100 percent, A+ record on NumbersUSA’s just released Congressional scorecard. Only one other member of the U.S. House also graded at A+, 100 percent. This is the eighth straight year that NumbersUSA has graded Congressman Brooks’ border security record at a perfect A+, 100 percent.

Rosemary Jenks, Director of Government Affairs for NumbersUSA, said, “Congressman Mo Brooks is a true American patriot. He is unwavering in his commitment to setting U.S. immigration policy in the interest of American workers, much to the chagrin of giant tech, big business, and the open-borders lobby. His 100 percent rating with NumbersUSA reflects that commitment. Our nine million grassroots activists across the country are grateful to Congressman Brooks for his leadership, and we are proud to stand with him.”
Brooks has been very vocal about his support for tougher enforcement of border security laws and in his support for building a wall along the U.S./Mexico border. Efforts to increase border security have largely stalled in the Congress over partisan bickering.

Congressman Mo Brooks represents Alabama’s 5th Congressional Distrct. Brooks is a former prosecutor, county commissioner, state legislator, and district attorney.
