Huizenga: Senate to blame for no border package


Border security has been in the news all week with the U.S. Senate failing to approve a long-sought bipartisan border deal. That came after House Speaker Mike Johnson declared the package “dead on arrival” if it was sent to the House.

Congressman Bill Huizenga tells us the Senate and the Biden administration are to blame for problems at the southern border.

“There is a myriad of things that this president could either do or reinstate without congressional action,” Huizenga said. “He is refusing to do it and is trying to actually flip it around and say, ‘Look, I’m doing everything I can possibly do.’ Well, if that’s the case, how can we have over 7 million people that have crossed into our country illegally without proper papers and without permission, 7 million plus since Joe Biden has been in office, and under the last administration, it was about two and a half million?”

Huizenga says the House has already approved a border package that the Senate won’t take up.

Meanwhile, Huizenga tells us he voted for the impeachment of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas this week, although the measure failed on a close vote. Huizenga says Mayorkas is not following the law with his handling of illegal entries into the country.
