Senator Marshall Fights for Border Security and Election Integrity On the Senate Floor 

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Roger Marshall, M.D. called for unanimous consent to pass two monumental bills on the Senate Floor this evening. First, Senator Marshall joined Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) in calling for the immediate passage of H.R. 2, the Secure our Borders Act. This legislation passed by the U.S. House of Representatives over a year ago and would immediately secure the border by finishing the wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, ending catch and release, hiring more border patrol agents, and ending the abuse of asylum. 

Senate Democrats blocked this bill from consideration. 

Following their dismal, Senator Marshall followed up immediately with calling for the passage of his Demanding Citizenship in D.C. Elections Act, legislation that requires anyone who votes in a municipal election in the District of Columbia to be a U.S. Citizen and require proof of citizenship. 

Senate Democrats also blocked this bill from consideration. 

Currently, we have 11 million illegal aliens on US. soil as Joe Biden continues to double down on the worst border crisis in history. Tonights actions by Senate Democrats reveal that they are not serious about border security, that our national security is an afterthought.

Highlights from Senator Marshall’s remarks include:

“Since day one, Joe Biden’s allowed the cartels to have operational control of our nation’s border, exploiting every weakness and pushing deadly fentanyl into our communities, killing over 300 Americans every day. I rise today to join my colleague in calling for unanimous consent for H.R. 2, the Secure Borders Act, which the House passed over a year ago has sat languaging on this side of the Capitol waiting for a hearing, waiting for a vote. Now, time after time, the President and his administration have shown us that our national security is an afterthought.”

“Now, the Left wants you to believe they have suddenly stumbled upon a solution to the border crisis they created. In the news this week, we’ll see the Democrats bait and switch tactics. And I want to remind the American people to watch what the majority leader and this administration do, not what they say. They have no serious solution. They know it and that’s why it’s painfully obvious that the stunts being pulled here this week are politically motivated.”

“Americans across the heartland are feeling unsafe due to Joe Biden’s worsening border crisis. Even a state like Kansas is now a border state. Fentanyl is flooding into our communities across the state claiming a life most every day, and now is the leading cause of death among young adults in America.”

“Without secure borders, we cannot ensure our nation’s safety. This national security crisis is unprecedented. And we have thoughtful, real solutions to address it immediately. Americans deserve to feel safe in their own homes. This half baked so-called Border Bill is an insult to Laken Riley and her family, and every other American citizen who has been victimized by crimes committed by someone who should not be in this country. Even the lead Democrat architect of the so-called Border Bill has said flat out this legislation does not close the border. You can quote him that it does not close the border. That’s all the American people need to hear to see how fast and loose the Democrat Party is willing to play with our national security.”

Senator Marshall pressed on calling for Unanimous Consent to pass his Demanding Citizenship in D.C. Elections Act.

Highlights from Senator Marshall’s remarks include: 

“Right now, we have over 11 million illegal immigrants here on United States soil. That’s enough to replace the entire population of 36 states, including the population of Kansas almost four times over.”

“When I’m back home, I often get asked, why does Joe Biden allow five to ten thousand people to cross our border illegally every day? Why would the Democrats rush millions of people, many unvetted into our country over the past three and a half years? Why is our national security an afterthought? How can the President hear Laken Riley’s story and the story of so many others who have died or been assaulted by the impacts of this border crisis and not do anything? How does he sleep at night?”

“When I think about his reaction to these questions, it becomes very clear what’s happening. The President is worried about the next election, not the next generation and not our national security.”

“The Democrats are courting these 11 million people, including terrorists, dangerous drug cartels and Chinese nationalists as future voters. They’re giving them free health care, pricey hotel stays, flights, cell phones and more, and reminding them to pay it back. Where? At the ballot box. Now, if you don’t believe me, look no further than what’s happening right here in our nation’s capital in Washington, D.C. Illegal aliens are now voting in local elections. Let me say that again. You can’t make this up. Illegal aliens are now voting in local elections at our nation’s capital.”

“That’s why I’m asking this body to consider the Demanding Citizenship in D.C. Elections Act immediately. Washington D.C., as we all know, falls under the jurisdiction of Congress, the intent of our founding fathers was to prevent any single state from gaining undue power by hosting the federal government. With the oversight powers bestowed on us here in Congress, it’s our obligation and duty to stop this election interference. The American people want free and fair elections, they want to trust that their vote won’t be superseded by the millions of illegal aliens that have been transported across the United States.”

“This is the Democrats playbook…We the People must fight back – too much is at stake. Our democracy as we know it is under attack by this administration.”
