On Fox, Cornyn Announces Resolution to Block Proposed Biden Immigration Rule
WASHINGTON – Today on Fox News’ Fox & Friends, U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) announced his plan to introduce a joint resolution of disapproval under the Congressional Review Act to eventually strike down President Biden’s proposed Circumvention of Lawful Pathways rule, which relies on a likely unlawful abuse of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s discretion to parole more migrants into the United States and would do nothing to deter migrants from making the dangerous journey to our southern border. Excerpts of Sen. Cornyn’s remarks are below, and video can be found here.
“The President’s policies are attracting more and more illegal immigration – what the Border Patrol calls ‘pull factors.’ In other words, the perception that there are no consequences associated with coming here outside of legal immigration channels.”
“Once again, I think the President will try to go it alone.”
“We’re going to introduce a Congressional Review Act, which is a way Congress can overrule that administrative rule because I believe it will do nothing but make things worse and not better.”
“I represent a border state. As many of my colleagues have said, we are all border states now. Given the proliferation of people coming across the border, and the drugs, it’s spread to all four corners of our country.”
“I don’t understand those who say, ‘No, we want more of this.’”
“We need to have orderly, humane, and legal immigration and stop the drugs coming across the border. What we are doing now does not work.”
