“The provisions in this bill...would significantly enhance the flexibility of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection to operate in this border area...the security-related enhancements to this bill are the result of careful consultations between your office (Sen. Bingaman) and CBP in New Mexico and in Washington DC.”
Alan Bersin, Commissioner U.S. Customs and Border Protection
"There can be no compromise in securing America against those who would do us harm. I applaud those in the federal government agencies, the private sector and Congress who've worked so collaboratively and collectively on the current legislative language in S-1689, the The Organ Mountains-Doña Ana County Conservation and Protection Act, to make the border safer while protecting the public lands in New Mexico."
Ron Colburn, National Deputy Chief of the U.S. Border Patrol, G.W. Bush Administration, Retired
