Daines Discusses Biden’s Southern Border Crisis on Fox News’ The Story With Martha MacCallum

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Steve Daines today joined Fox News’ The Story With Martha MacCallum to discuss President Biden’s southern border crisis.

Watch Daines’ remarks HERE.

Daines on the Biden-Created Border Crisis:

Now, Martha, here’s the truth and here are the facts: the reason you’ve got the White House and President Biden doing a tap dance at the moment is because President Biden’s approval numbers at this point in his presidency are the worst in 75 years of American history. He’s below Jimmy Carter numbers at this point and the number one issue is the border that’s controlled by the Mexican cartels that’s out of control. I’ll tell you if you take a look at what Biden inherited from President Trump, President Trump put policies in place like remain in Mexico, like Title 42, building a wall. We saw some of the lowest numbers in decades. And on Day One of President Biden’s presidency, he went down to the White House and by executive order, he reversed these policies that were working. It’s cause and effect. He inherited a secure border. He’s created chaos by his own making. 

Daines on Biden and Senate Democrats’ Failure to Resolve the Border Crisis:

Well, go back and read the details of the text of that bill. First of all, President Biden is not going to enforce anything that we put in place. There’s a provision in there, a paragraph that says he can create an emergency order and not enforce some of these provisions that are in that bill. This is the problem. President Biden and the Senate Democrats do not want to really solve the problem. They want to solve their political problem. It’s a huge liability for them politically. But if they want to solve the problem, President Biden can do that. Senate Democrats can tell President Biden use some of the same exact tools that President Trump used, and we can secure the border again. It’s that simple. President Biden does not want to actually see an outcome. He wants a political outcome, not a secure border.
