ABBOTT SAYS BIDEN ADMIN NEEDS TO ‘UP THEIR GAME, BIG TIME’ AS TEXAS GRAPPLES WITH MIGRANT SURGE

JOHN CORNYN: I would say it’s a failure of the administration to perform one of the most basic functions a government is supposed to perform which is to defend our borders, protect our national sovereignty and enforce our laws.

Under the Biden administration, they’re waved through and told to appear for a future hearing and we know the majority of them will not show up. And so this is an invitation for more people to do exactly the same and that’s what I predict. If they wanted to stop it, they would. We know from the Border Patrol that there are three things that we need. We need Border Patrol agents, we need infrastructure called a fence or wall and we need technology. We need the will to actually accomplish the job. That’s what’s lacking here. And the American people are simply being lied to.
