Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell addressed the escalating immigration crisis unfolding at the southern border Thursday; saying it’s “simply not a human right” for anyone in the western hemisphere to “break our rules” and illegally enter the United States.
“Orderly legal immigration is part of the heart of the United States of America,” said McConnell. “It simply is not a universal human right for everybody in the Western Hemisphere who would like a better job… to break our rules and turn up at the border.”
“No country in the world can govern itself that way,” he added. “It’s unfair and uncompassionate to the people it entices into the scorching desert sun.”

100% KENNEDY: Biden’s Immigration Plan Like ‘Giving Whiskey and Car Keys to a Teenager’
Senator John Kennedy perfectly summed up the Biden administration’s response to the spiraling border crisis Tuesday; saying the plan is like “giving whiskey and car keys to a teenager.”
“I think that the reason the vice president went to Guatemala and met with President [Alejandro] Giammattei is to offer him billions and billions of American taxpayer dollars to try to make his country better, and with no disrespect but that’s like giving whiskey and car keys to a teenager,” Kennedy told “Fox & Friends.”

“President Giammattei is an authoritarian. He presides over a corrupted administration. They’re probably going to steal the money. Corruption is rampant,” Kennedy continued. “Now, you don’t have to be Einstein’s cousin to figure all of this out.”
100% KENNEDY: ‘America Has Become One Giant Sanctuary City’ Thanks to Joe Biden
Senator John Kennedy ripped the Biden administration’s approach to immigration on Fox News Monday; saying 2 million people will enter the USA illegally in 2021 thanks to the actions of the President.
“The Department of Homeland Security has announced that the border is closed. But, they lie like they breathe…If you believe the border is closed, you believe in the Tooth Fairy, the Easter Bunny, and that Jimmy Hoffa died of natural causes. We’ll have two million people come into the United States this year illegally thanks to the administration. They have no idea who they are except they’re coming from all over the world. The Biden administration has almost completely halted any kind of deportation of people already here illegally. America has become one giant sanctuary city,” said Kennedy.
