2019 Legislative Priority: Border Security

  • The National Sheriffs’ Association (NSA) strongly supports the increased partnership from Congress and the Administration on border security issues to ensure the safety first and foremost to our citizens, law enforcement officers and communities.
  • The NSA recognizes that an increase and streamlined funding of Operation Stonegarden grants are a pivotal resource for the Nation’s sheriffs.
  • NSA values our partnership with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), specifically in Basic Ordering Agreement (BOA) and the Warrant Service Officer initiative, which assists law enforcement officers in their challenges facing immigration detainers.
  • NSA calls for the increase in personnel and equipment on the border to assist local law enforcement and further protect and serve our communities. In addition, NSA recognizes the maritime border and corridor as an integrated aspect of border security.
  • NSA supports BJA/COPS in their most recent effort to increase data sharing, real time intelligence, and communication through an intelligence training program as a part of their border security and crime prevention initiative
