‘This President seems just determined to be tone deaf in terms of the human consequences of the policies that he himself has caused.’

WASHINGTON--U.S. Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, today appeared on Fox News’ Fox & Friends to discuss the growing humanitarian crisis along Texas’ southern border and the President’s refusal to visit the border during his trip to Texas this week:

The full video can be seen here. Excerpts of his remarks are below.

“It would help him get outside of the bubble that all presidents get in. But this President seems just determined to be tone deaf in terms of the human consequences of the policies that he himself has caused.

“...The President should see what we saw....[He] refuses to take the necessary steps in order to deter people from starting out on this long perilous journey up from Central America through Mexico in the hands of the drug cartels where many of them are kidnapped, assaulted.

“...The President is giving the impression that we're not going to enforce the law, so that's basically been a huge magnet and it will continue to get worse, Steve, before it gets better unless the President steps up.”

Senator 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.
