Senator Marshall Slams Democrats’ Border Bailout Bill on Evening Edit

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Roger Marshall, M.D. joined Evening Edit on Fox Business to discuss Senate Democrats looking for political cover six months out from the election with a haphazard border bailout bill. 

Senate Democrats’ border bailout is an unserious proposal that only worsens the crisis by codifying catch and release, expanding the abuse of parole, weakening asylum screening, supercharging NGOs, and allowing thousands of migrants to cross before they take any action.

Highlights from Senator Marshall’s interview include:

On the Democrats’ Border Bill that passed in the Senate today:

“What could happen is Joe Biden could secure the border right now. Remember, if he would just go back to Remain in Mexico that would solve the problem. Chuck Schumer also has H.R. 2, the bill that’s passed on the House side that truly secures the border. He’s had that for over a year now. So that’s what I would like to do is pick it up and if there are some things they don’t like in it, then great let’s go through the amendment process. But otherwise what comes next I think is an election in November.”

“This is all political theater. The purpose of this bill today was to give someone like John Tester up in Montana some political cover, so he got to vote today… Their polling has finally gotten bad enough that they’re gonna pretend like they’re serious.”The Democrats want no real part of any type of thing that’s going to solve this problem. they want the problem, these 11 million people are going to turn into voters for them at least that’s what they think.”
