HOUSTON -- U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX), Ranking Member on the Senate Judiciary’s Immigration, Refugees, and Border Security Subcommittee, today issued the following statement responding to reports that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) plans to cut hours and overtime pay for Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) agents, potentially leaving portions of our borders unmanned for hours at a time:

“The Obama Administration’s actions amount to nothing short of a calculated, willful neglect of what should be a President’s top priority: protecting the homeland and keeping Americans safe.

“The fact that the Administration would needlessly jeopardize the safety of American citizens as part of a continued misinformation campaign surrounding the effects of sequestration is outrageous and reprehensible.”

Sen. Cornyn wrote to DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano to express outrage with the recent actions of the Department in response to sequestration, including releasing thousands of detainees from detention centers across the country and issuing furlough notices to CBP personnel. Sen. Cornyn also wrote to Subcommittee Chairman U.S. Senator Charles Schumer (D-NY) to demand hearings following the detainee releases. He has yet to receive a response to either letter.
