Tim Scott: Sanctuary Cities Like New York Are Experiencing What Texas and Arizona Experience Everyday
“Seeing the devastation in Texas today – thousands of illegal immigrants coming to the border – it’s something that sanctuary cities like New York, San Francisco and other places haven’t experienced.” – Tim Scott
Martha MacCallum: If President Scott were looking at what was going on at the border. If President Biden was out and you were in. What do you do on day one?
Tim Scott: Day one, is you eliminate the Inflation Reduction Act, you get rid of the 87,000 IRS agents that he was going to hire, take that $40 billion, I have legislation to do so, that would do so. I would sign that legislation, and put that $40 billion in the hands of our border patrol agents. We would double the number of agents that we have on the on the border and provide more resources, more incentives for longer hours. In addition to that, I would certainly welcome more of our military there on the border.
What we see is a lot of noise from frankly, here in New York, where you see the governor, the mayor fighting with the president for more resources because they’re finally experiencing what Texas and Arizona have been experiencing for years. Seeing the devastation in Texas today – thousands of illegal immigrants coming to the border – it’s something that sanctuary cities like New York, San Francisco and other places haven’t experienced. Now that they’re experiencing, they’re having fights within their parties.
Martha MacCallum: A wake up call.
Tim Scott: It should happen every day, though. We should never surrender our southern border, and we should never apologize for keeping it strong.
