WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) released the following statement after his amendment to the Democrats’ $3.5 trillion budget resolution was adopted 76-23:
“The Biden administration’s rollback of immigration laws has not only magnified the humanitarian crisis, it has left our law enforcement with the impossible task of trying to slow the flow of illegal crossings while also attempting to stop drug, weapon and human traffickers from entering the country.
“This vote sends a clear message to President Biden and Vice President Harris that their border policies are failing and we should immediately strengthen enforcement of our immigration laws to address the humanitarian crisis at our southern border.”
Sen. Moran’s amendment was updated to include additional resources for smart and effective border security, improve asylum processing and reduce immigration court backlogs. The updated amendment can be found here.
