ICYMI: Sen. Scott Joins Kudlow, Urges President Biden to End His Open Border Policy 

WASHINGTON — U.S. Senator Tim Scott (R-S.C.) appeared on Kudlow on Fox Business to discuss the raging illegal immigration crisis. Senator Scott highlighted the one million people that have crossed into the U.S. since October of 2023 and urged President Biden to enforce the law and secure the border.

Watch the interview here.

On the border crisis… “Since October we’ve seen more than a million people cross our border illegally – 85% of them at least let into our country. Why is that happening? It’s not because the president cannot act. Under President Trump, we had a closed, secure border by and large. Under Joe Biden, he wants an open, porous southern border because they want more voters. They are not trying to protect the American people. They are simply letting the greatest invasion in history, by the time we get to the election, 10 million illegal immigrants crossing our southern border for one reason: it’s what they want.”

On President Biden’s act to open the border… “Joe Biden could have closed the border or, frankly, kept the border closed when he came into office. He actually used a pen and paper to reverse the decision of protecting Americans from fentanyl, from the cartels, from sleeper cells and from 10 million people – we don’t know where they are, we don’t know what they want, but they’re not here just because they want jobs, not all of them.”

On why the Senate border legislation was a bad deal… “We should not pass legislation that allows 1.8 million into the country illegally. We should not pass legislation that allows for catch and release to be codified into the law of our country, and we certainly should not allow people into our country and give them work permits when it will only stifle opportunities for Americans who today are working paycheck to paycheck.”

On how to support Border Patrol… “When we look at the 87,000 new IRS agents brought to us by Joe Biden – let’s take those resources, $42 billion dollars of it, and give it to the Border Patrol agents so they can hire more people, have better overtime and frankly have a better quality of life while protecting America’s border.”
