U.S. Rep. Mark Green was honored to be named to be the Lead Republican on the Western Hemisphere Subcommittee of the House Foreign Affairs Committee. From porous borders to a creeping China, we have much work to do!
From Clarksville Online:
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Representative Mark Green has been named Ranking Member of the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on the Western Hemisphere, Civilian Security, Migration, and International Economic Policy.
Representative Green said, “It’s an honor to be selected to serve as the Ranking Member of the Western Hemisphere Subcommittee, and I look forward to working with Lead Republican McCaul and my colleagues to strengthen the partnership of the United States with our neighbors across North, Central, and South America.”
“As an Army veteran with over two decades of service in uniform, I understand that the security and prosperity of our closest neighbors is directly tied to ours. From transnational crime and human and drug trafficking to threats to democracy, citizen security, and women’s rights, our hemisphere faces a host of pressing challenges. I am deeply committed to protecting the American people from the devastating consequences of illegal immigration and the transnational drug trade, and I look forward to working with my colleagues on this subcommittee and our allies across the region to promote economic growth, strengthen democracy and the rule of law, and build a more peaceful and prosperous future for our people, the region, and the world.”
