• Continue investigations and studies of undue hindrance of trade and tourism caused by the lack of adequate bridges or other physical facilities along the border and by the lack of sufficient United States customs and immigration laws, by the devaluation of the Mexican Peso and other recent developments that have affected the economy and welfare of the State of Texas, and by the continued increase in the traffic of illegal drugs and aliens along the border, paying special attention that the dignity and integrity of every person as well as the basic rights of individuals guaranteed in both the United States and Texas Constitutions are at all times preserved and respected by all governmental authorities at all levels.

The Committee was initially created by SR 377, 64th Legislature and was continued by SR 322, 65th Legislature, Regular Session.
