Speaker McCall to File Legislation Securing Oklahoma's Border

OKLAHOMA CITY (March 20th) – Speaker Charles McCall, R-Atoka, issued a statement today regarding his intent to file legislation to secure the border of Oklahoma against the ongoing illegal immigration crisis.  

"The failed policies of the Biden Administration have turned every state into a border state," McCall said. "Oklahoma is a law and order state, and should be the last place illegal immigrants want to settle when they cross over the border. For those reasons, and in light of recent court rulings regarding Senate Bill 4 out of Texas, I am immediately introducing legislation to secure the borders of Oklahoma in the same fashion as our neighbors to the south. Oklahoma will stand ready to defend its borders from all who would enter our country illegally."

Senate Bill 4, passed in Texas in 2023, allows Texas law enforcement to arrest and deport migrants who enter the state illegally from Mexico.
