The new Republican-led House of Representatives will send a package of border security bills to senators who blocked any attempts to secure the border, House Majority Leader Steve Scalise (R-LA) warned Sunday.
According to the Washington Examiner, Scalise told FOX News’ Maria Bartiromo: “You’re going to see Republicans bring bills through the House to actually secure America’s border.”
During the upcoming border security debate, the Louisiana Republican wrote on social media, “the Senate will be forced to declare whether they support open borders or the end of deadly drugs and illegal immigration.”
He added, “They no longer have Pelosi to shield them.”
Meanwhile, The House Committee on Oversight and Accountability announced Thursday that it will hold its first hearing next month on border security at the U.S.-Mexico border.
The Chairman of the House of Representatives (R-KY) sent Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas a letter Thursday criticizing the administration’s handling of the border crisis and requesting documents and communications regarding the border crisis dating back to the beginning of the Biden presidency.
It’s about time the do-nothing Democrats started paying attention to what the GOP is putting together in the House of Representatives. This package of border security bills they plan on sending to senators would expose how unwilling they have been to take action and get real work done about the crisis at our southern border. Plus, The House Committee on Oversight and Accountability has announced that it will be holding a hearing about border security next month- something that Democrats have shied away from for far too long. Maybe now we can finally see some accountability and real progress getting made about this pressing issue.
