Durbin: Our Southern Border Today, by Every Measurable Standard, Is Much Less Secure than When Trump Took Office
DURBIN: "In less than two and a half years, there have already been four heads of this department. We have before us today an acting secretary who's been on the job for more than two months. We cannot face this crisis effectively with a revolving door policy in the leadership of the Department of Homeland Security. In fact, every position at DHS with responsibility for immigration and border security is now being held by a temporary appointee who's not been confirmed by the Senate. The White House has not even submitted nominations for these positions. Despite all of President Trump's tough talk and meanness, our southern border today by every measurable standard is much less secure than when he took office."
