‘If they oppose my plan, their claims of securing the border are nothing but lip service designed to manipulate the American people into supporting this flawed bill.’

WASHINGTON -- U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) issued the following statement after Senate Democrats rejected his amendment that offers a chance for real results on border security before seeing it:

“It took less than 12 hours for Senate Democrats to reject a real border security plan. The American people don't believe that the so-called Gang of Eight's bill will ever deliver real results when it comes to border security and enforcement.

“The choice for Senate Democrats when I offer my amendment is very simple: if they are sincere about securing the border, here is their chance. If they oppose my plan, their claims of securing the border are nothing but lip service designed to manipulate the American people into supporting this flawed bill.”

Cornyn serves on the Finance and Judiciary Committees. He serves as the top Republican on the Judiciary Committee’s Immigration, Refugees and Border Security subcommittee. He served previously as Texas Attorney General, Texas Supreme Court Justice, and Bexar County District Judge.
