U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill’s Newsletter 06/09/17
Missouri may not be a border state, but we all know we're less safe if our border isn't secure.
That's why I wanted to make sure you saw this, because it's a big win in my fight to protect Missouri families. The U.S. House just passed a bipartisan bill I'm cosponsoring that will strengthen border security by filling open positions with qualified veterans and experienced law enforcement officials.
I've been proud to work with my Republican and Democratic colleagues—including Senator John McCain, who serves with me on the Homeland Security and Armed Services committees—to pass this commonsense solution to keep our communities safe.
Working together, we passed this through the Homeland Security committee, which I lead alongside Republican Senator Ron Johnson, and I hope to see it head to the President's desk for final passage very soon.
Learn more about the bipartisan Boots on the Border bill, and share on Facebook and Twitter.
All the best,
