WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senator Rick Scott released the below statement following the release of the latest U.S. Customs and Border Protection apprehension numbers – which show more than 180,000 illegal aliens tried to cross the border in May.


Senator Rick Scott said, “President Biden and Vice President Harris are more than willing to travel abroad, but they can’t be bothered to visit our own border where a crisis they created is raging. More than 180,000 illegal aliens tried to cross our southern border last month, threating our national security and the safety of American families. This has to stop. Biden and Harris need to stop avoiding this crisis, stop laughing off this threat, get down to the border and take real steps to address securing the border. American families deserve better.”
