VOTE ALERT: Cruz and Scott Oppose Bipartisan Border Security Bill, DSCC Releases New Digital Video

DSCC releases new digital video: “Republicans Won’t Keep Us Safe” 

In response to Senators Cruz and Scott voting against even considering the bipartisan border security bill, Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) spokesperson Tommy Garcia released the following statement:

“Cruz and Scott’s vote against securing our border, cracking down on fentanyl trafficking and keeping Americans safe represents the worst kind of Washington politics. Republicans, border patrol agents and Americans of every political persuasion are backing this bill, but Cruz and Scott voted against even considering it to satisfy their petty, self-serving politics. Now, voters in their states will hold Cruz and Scott accountable by firing them in 2024.” 

Today the DSCC also released a new digital video, “Republicans Won’t Keep Us Safe,” featuring news footage calling out Senate Republicans for opposing their own bill, failing to secure the border, and risking Americans’ safety.

JUST THE FACTS: BORDER BILL INCLUDES “TOUGHER STANDARDS,” “FASTER ENFORCEMENT,” CRACKS DOWN ON FENTANYL, BACKED BY BORDER PATROL AGENTS.

  • Associated Press: Bill includes “Tougher Standards And Faster Enforcement.“The package would also send $20 billion to immigration enforcement, providing money to hire thousands more officers to evaluate asylum claims, add hundreds of more Border Patrol agents and help stop the flow of fentanyl. The bill would overhaul the asylum system with tougher standards and faster enforcement.”
