Unlike President Trump, I’m focusing on the real emergency at our Southern border: the tragic and preventable deaths of migrant children.
I want to tell you more about how the legislation I recently introduced will tackle this issue, but if you’re ready for progress on this issue, then please click here to become a citizen co-sponsor of the REMOTE Act: http://nm.martinheinrich.com/REMOTE-Act
The Trump administration’s immigration policies are forcing asylum seekers to attempt a dangerous journey of crossing between major ports of entry.
In recent months, the number of migrants attempting to cross our border in these remote areas has increased, but the amount of emergency personnel and medical equipment in these areas has largely remained stagnant.
The lack of resources has already led to the tragic deaths of minors. We cannot allow this public health crisis to continue.
That’s why I joined with fellow border state Senators to introduce the Remote, Emergency, Medical, Online Training, Telehealth, and EMT (REMOTE) Act. Please, join us by becoming a citizen co-sponsor today →
The REMOTE Act will ensure that DHS agents at the border have the resources to adequately care for migrants entering the United States in desolate, and often understaffed, areas.
Families seeking asylum from persecution and violence should not risk severe health problems, and even death, because of a lack of resources near our border. My legislation is a pragmatic and responsible way to address these unspeakable tragedies.
Please, help me spread the word about this legislation by adding your name as a citizen co-sponsor: http://nm.martinheinrich.com/REMOTE-Act
