WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senator Rick Scott spoke on the Senate floor outlining his expectations for Vice President Harris ahead of her planned visit to the United States southern border.
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, “It’s about time that Vice President Harris does her job. It’s embarrassing how long the Vice President avoided the crisis she and Biden created. Now, she needs to see the crisis she's helped create firsthand. She needs to meet with our CBP and ICE agents, and the local law enforcement officers who are working every day to keep us safe. She needs to meet with families who have been the victims of trafficking and hears the horrific stories they have and what they’ve been through because of this crisis. She needs to talk with families who have tragically lost loved ones from the massive amounts of fentanyl that the cartels are moving across our border. The American people deserve better than just another political stunt. 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.”
