WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senator Rick Scott released the below statement following reports that Vice President Harris will finally visit the United States southern border. For months, Senator Scott has been calling for President Biden and Vice President Harris to visit the border and see firsthand the national security and humanitarian crisis that their failed open borders and amnesty policies have created.
Senator Scott will maintain his holds on President Biden’s nominees to fill political positions at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) until Vice President Harris arrives at the border.
Senator Rick Scott said, “More than 90 days after being named as the Biden administration’s lead to handle the massive border crisis it has created, it looks like Vice President Harris is finally going to make the trip. I hope that this actually happens, and doesn’t fall flat like its other promises to not raise taxes on American families, or reopen schools quickly, or be tough on Communist China. Last month, I said that I would hold all DHS political nominees until the White House got down to the border. I’m glad that I finally got their attention and some accountability for the American people. I’ll never stop fighting for border security and will continue to do everything in my power to hold this administration accountable for its border crisis.”
