Sen. Cotton: Kamala Harris ‘Gallivanted Around’ Looking for Illegal Immigration’s ‘Root Causes’ – ‘They’re Right Up the Street’ – By Craig Bannister (CNS News) / June 15 2021
“I could’ve saved the taxpayer the travel expense” of sending Vice President Kamala Harris south of the border in search of the “root causes” of illegal immigration, Senator Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) said Tuesday at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing discussing the House-passed American Dream and Promise Act of 2021 (H.R. 6).
While Democrats claim the bill is necessary to grant amnesty to children brought to the U.S., through no fault of their own, who “have never known another country,” it would actually give amnesty to 18 year-old illegal aliens who broke into the country as recently as last December, Sen. Cotton said:
“The House bill would give a green card, though, to, say, an 18 year-old who arrived here in December. So, that’s very different than what Sen. Coons portrayed or what the Democrats portray that this legislation would do. And that’s why this meeting itself is so ill-advised. We have a crisis at the border: illegal migrant flows that we haven’t seen in a generation.”
