AFP-OH Calls out Brown on Border Security Voting Record  

Jul 11, 2024 by AFP

COLUMBUS, OH – Ohio is in crisis due to the disastrous border security policies put forward by Joe Biden and Sherrod Brown. This week, Brown released an ad claiming he will “work with anyone” to keep Ohio safe.

But, in 2022, Sherrod Brown voted against an amendment that would have sent $500 million to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection to install fentanyl scanning equipment. Also, in 2021, he voted against an amendment to send $300 million to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection to help improve opioid and narcotic detection.  

AFP-Ohio State Director Donovan O’Neil released the following statement:  

“Sherrod Brown had many chances to work across the aisle to protect Americans from dangerous substances and secure the border. But, when it came time to vote, Senator Brown made the choice to vote with his party to shoot down these solutions.  

“As we can see by his voting record, Brown’s claims that he will ‘work with anyone’ are unequivocally false.  

“Ohio needs Senator Brown to put people above partisanship and fight for Ohioans even when nobody is watching.”  


In May, Americans for Prosperity (AFP) launched a seven-figure digital ad campaign entitled “Secure Borders, Secure America,” calling on Sherrod Brown and other members of Senate and Congress to end the Biden border crisis.  

AFP has been consistently calling for more border agents, more walls, and more surveillance technology all along our southern border. In parallel with the launch of the ads, AFP launched a webpage, Secure Borders, Secure America, which shares information and upcoming initiatives addressing border security and immigration reform.
