One of the most basic functions a government is supposed to perform is to defend our borders, Senator John Cornyn of Texas said. He stated that the administration has come up short in protecting our national sovereignty and enforcing our laws. 

Senator Cornyn said in an interview, ​​“There is no deterrence. There are no consequences associated with illegally entering the United States. Under the Biden administration, they’re waved through and told to appear for a future hearing and we know the majority of them will not show up. And so this is an invitation for more people to do exactly the same and that’s what I predict. If they wanted to stop it, they would. We know from the Border Patrol that there are three things that we need. We need Border Patrol agents, we need infrastructure called a fence or wall and we need technology. We need the will to actually accomplish the job. That’s what’s lacking here.”
