U.S. SENATE – U.S. Senator Steve Daines today delivered remarks at the weekly Republican Senate Leadership press conference slamming President Biden for his record-breaking southern border crisis.
“Joe Biden is a record-breaking president. Record high inflation. Record high gas prices. Record high illegal border crossings. And this administration who, ‘brought back transparency,’ conveniently disclosed the August border numbers in a Friday evening news dump when they thought nobody was paying attention, and I can see why they wanted the American people to miss this.
“New numbers show President Biden’s southern border crisis just keeps breaking records. It’s getting worse and worse. August alone saw a record at nearly a quarter million illegal crossings. Since Biden took office, there’s been a record nearly 8 million crossings. That’s equivalent to adding three Chicago’s of illegal immigrants to our country in less than three years.
“It’s out of control; since day one, Biden ended construction on the border wall, ended the remain in Mexico policy and then ended Title 42. And we as the American people have been paying the price ever since. Fentanyl, crime, every state now is a border state.
“We had more than 100,000 drug overdose deaths in 2022. Yes, another record. Another record was set as well. Record low approval ratings for President Biden just came out on his handling of the southern border. It’s time for Joe Biden to stop breaking records and start securing our southern border. Mr. President, shut down the border don’t shut down the government.”
