Op-Ed: Cornyn – Solution to Migrant Crisis Should be Bipartisan

WASHINGTON – On Tuesday at a press conference, U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) discussed the migrant crisis at the border and the importance for any long-term solution to be bipartisan.

Excerpts of Sen. Cornyn’s remarks are below, and video can be found above.

“Before we leave, we do have to pass an appropriation bill to fund border security and the Department of Homeland Security, and our Democratic colleagues seem to come up with a lot of criticism but have no answer.”

“They don’t see the bigger picture, which is the drug cartels and the transnational criminal organizations that are commodity agnostic. In other words, they don’t care who they hurt, who dies in the process, how much poison they import into the United States.”

“I do want to express my appreciation to Secretary Nielsen, Secretary Pompeo, and the Trump Administration for negotiating toward an arrangement whereby people who seek asylum in the United States can wait while their claim is being adjudicated in Mexico.”

“That represents a sea change in our relationship with Mexico and recognition that this is a problem we need to solve together, and I think it’s good news. Of course, the best solution would be a bipartisan fix of what’s broken in our immigration system. That’s been rejected out of hand by our Democratic colleagues, and that’s regrettable.”

Senator John Cornyn, a Republican from Texas, is a member of the Senate Finance, Intelligence, and Judiciary Committees.

  1. Didn’t the GOP under John Boehner, block the bipartisan Comprehensive Immigration Reform during the Obama administration? Where were you then Sen Cornyn?

    • Republicans only have two sets of rules! partisan rules against the democrats, and all sorts of obstructional collusion rules for themselves. John Cornyn MUST BE VOTED OUT OF OFFICE come November 2020.
      All John Boehner wanted to do, is to make more than sure that president Barack Obama’s presidency would end up in total failure.
      WELL HE LOST! in that bid.And in two years from now, the BLUE WAVE WILL WOLLOPE the republican senate like it just did to the gop congress. RESTORE DEMOCRACY and BRING CRIMINAL JUSTICE CHARGES against Donald Trump,remove him from power and send him and his, packing straight to a Federal Prison. LOCK EM ALL UP, and throw away the key.
