There’s no denying that there is a crisis at our border. And there’s no doubt that President Biden’s policies have made it worse. Now, conservatives are stepping up to do something about it.
Sen. Jim Risch (R-ID) and seven of his colleagues—including Sens. Bill Hagerty (R-TN) and Todd Young (R-IN)—just released a report that shows how Biden has incentivized millions of immigrants to try to enter our country illegally. His return to failed Obama-era policies and attempts to strip law enforcement of their power to turn people away have fueled the immigration fire. Of course, these Senate leaders also offer bold solutions to end Biden’s open-borders madness—like enforcing the Remain in Mexico program and helping our neighbors improve their own border security.
Today, I released my @SenateForeign report titled "Biden's Border Crisis: Examining Policies that Encourage Illegal Migration" which identifies key problems with the Biden administration's border policy & offers solutions for how we can reverse course.— Jim Risch (@SenatorRisch) June 22, 2022

Biden may have made the border into the mess that it is, but Washington can clean it up if they’re willing to act on conservatives’ commonsense plan. That can’t happen a moment too soon.
