Probably a year ago, I introduced a bill… thinking that if things got too bad, the Biden Administration might reach out, take a lifeline, and begin that conversation.

"Unfortunately, it's been nothing but crickets, and we have seen three million border encounters since the Biden Administration came into office."

"At some point, you have to just reach the sad conclusion that they don't care."

WASHINGTON – Today on Fox News’ America Reports, U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) discussed the Biden Administration’s apathy towards addressing issues at the southern border, including the flow of drugs that kill thousands of Americans each year. Excerpts of Sen. Cornyn’s remarks are below, and video can be found here

“Probably a year ago, I introduced a bill with Senator Kyrsten Sinema, a border state Senator and a Democrat, and Henry Cuellar, [and] a Republican in the House, called the Bipartisan Border Solutions Act, thinking that if things got too bad, the Biden Administration might reach out, take a lifeline, and begin that conversation.

Unfortunately, it's been nothing but crickets, and we have seen three million border encounters since the Biden Administration came into office. Last year alone, 108,000 Americans died of drug overdoses, those drugs primarily coming across the southern border. 

At some point, you have to just reach the sad conclusion that they don't care. They care more about trying to keep their political base happy at the same time with an open border policy that's dangerous, not just to border states like mine or border communities, but literally every state has become a border state.
