Ahead of former President Trump and Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s visit to the southern border, Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., blasted the Biden administration for “wanting open borders.” The House minority whip pointed to a new House bill that would slash $927 million from CBP.
Trump and Abbott will participate in a town hall with Sean Hannity, Wednesday at 9:00 p.m. ET on Fox News Channel.
STEVE SCALISE: It’s really bizarre, it’s their priority. They want open borders. Look, you looked over the weekend you had the White House trying to blame other people for defunding the police which is a crazy idea they embrace. Now they are trying to defund our Border Patrol. When that goes south they will blame somebody for that, too. They are the ones doing it.
They can blame everybody they want; it proves that their policies are failing. In the end, they are doing this deliberately, they know the results of it. You can go down to the detention facility and see these places overrun with people here illegally. They don’t know what to do with them.
They are sending them to states all around the nation and they won’t be honest with us or the American people about where they are going and which states they are sending them to. Local school systems are going to be getting kids by the hundreds that can’t speak English and they don’t care about those consequences because they just want to register everybody to vote. They have an agenda and using kids unfortunately as pieces for their game and it’s a dangerous political game for America.
