The U.S. House passed legislation Wednesday that would require the Department of Homeland Security to conduct a threat assessment of the border with Mexico.

 

The bill sponsored by Rep. Martha McSally, R-AZ, includes a requirement for a five-year plan to improve border security.

McSally said, Border Patrol officials told her the agency only has control of half of the U.S.-Mexico border.
