PHOTO RELEASE: Sen. Rick Scott Visits Southern Border with Gov. Doug Ducey

March 19, 2021

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senator Rick Scott received a briefing from state and federal law enforcement officers in Arizona on the humanitarian crisis along the Southern border being fueled by President Biden’s disastrous policies of amnesty and open borders. Senator Scott also toured the Southern border with Arizona Governor Doug Ducey.

Senator Rick Scott said, “There’s a crisis at the border and it’s 100% President Biden’s fault. Our brave border patrol and ICE officers are working around the clock to keep Americans safe, and today Governor Ducey and I got to see that work firsthand. Biden’s open borders and amnesty policies are wreaking havoc and incentivizing illegal immigration and the endangerment of children whose parents are sending them here alone. There were over 100,000 detentions in February, compared to 37,000 in February 2020 – a 170% increase. It’s unacceptable and dangerous, and it’s a crisis that demands action. It’s time for the Biden Administration to secure the border and send a clear message of law and order. And it’s time for the President to get down here and see the crisis he’s created.”
