Cornyn Calls on VP Harris to Visit Border During Texas Fundraising Trip

October 7, 2022

AUSTIN – As Vice President Kamala Harris plans to attend a Texas Democratic Party fundraiser tomorrow in Austin, U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) released the following statement calling on her, as the leader of the Biden Administration’s efforts on border security and migration, to visit the Texas-Mexico border during her trip:

“Texans have been forced to bear the consequences of this Administration’s failure to address the border crisis, including the historic number of illegal crossings as well as the tragic rise in migrant deaths, drug smuggling, fentanyl overdoses, and cartel violence,” said Sen. Cornyn. “Unfortunately, the Administration’s Border Czar hasn’t seen the epicenter of their self-inflicted crisis firsthand, which has overwhelmed our border communities and law enforcement. Instead of using our state as an ATM and leaving as fast as possible, the Vice President should go to the border and meet with Texans to understand the very real costs of her inaction.”
