Written by Marsha Blackburn
U.S. Senator

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – It’s easy to put stories of the crisis facing our nation at a distance when you live and work more than a thousand miles north of the United States-Mexico border. But as the effects of mass illegal immigration spread northward, Tennesseans are facing a stark new reality: when our border isn’t secure, every town becomes a border town and every state a border state.

Perhaps no one understands that better than Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Director David Rausch, who describes the crisis as “out of control.”
