Republican Senator Kevin McCarthy has been very vocal about President Biden’s repeated failure to visit the southern border, and he’s still frustrated and talking about it.
McCarthy said the refusal to act is “making every city in America a border city.”
“I’ve listened to this president say he’s been in office for more than 40 years, but they never can prove one time that he’s even been to the border,” said McCarthy. “More than two-thirds of the Republicans in Congress have been to the border just this year. So, we’d like to sit down with him if he’s too busy to get there because the challenge of what is happening, it’s making every city in America a border city. Fentanyl has increased by more than 300%, killing Americans.”
“What we’re finding,” said McCarthy, “we are catching people on the terrorist watch list. So this is not just Central America — more than 150 other countries. … Why are they coming to America? Who are they working with? And what do they have planned?”
McCarthy expressed deep concern for the safety of Americans saying, “This is about the security of our country, and the president says he is too busy to deal with it? We’d like to sit down with him, talk about the facts and solve this problem once and for all.”
