Collins, King Celebrate Today’s 100th Anniversary of the U.S. Border Patrol

Washington, D.C. — U.S. Senators Susan Collins (R-ME) and Angus King (I-ME) are celebrating the 100th anniversary of the United States Border Patrol (USBP). Last week, they cosponsored a bipartisan Senate resolution with their colleagues to recognize today, May 28, 2024, as the 100th anniversary of USBP.

On this 100th anniversary of Border Patrol, we commend the frontline men and women who are keeping our nation safe — ultimately, ensuring that the United States remains true to its values of security and opportunity.”

U.S. Senators John Cornyn (R-TX), Ted Cruz (R-TX) Kyrsten Sinema (I-AZ), Jon Tester (D-MT), Thom Tillis (R-NC), Jim Risch (R-ID), Mike Crapo (R-ID), Kevin Cramer (R-ND), James Lankford (R-OK), Joe Manchin (D-WV), Steve Daines (R-MT), Mark Kelly (D-AZ), John Kennedy (R-LA), Catherine Cortez Masto (D-NV), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Rick Scott (R-FL), John Hoeven (R-ND), Ted Budd (R-NC), and Gary Peters (D-MI) cosponsored this resolution.
