VIDEO: Young Reiterates Call on Biden-Harris Administration to Secure the Border

WASHINGTON – Today, U.S. Senator Todd Young (R-Ind.) joined a group of Republican Senators to discuss the current crisis at the Southern Border, including the massive migrant camp under the Del Rio International Bridge in Texas.


In May, Senator Young visited the border and saw the crisis firsthand. Since January, there have been more than 1.3 million encounters with people attempting to cross the Southern Border. Estimates show as many as 400,000 migrants could cross into the U.S. this month.


“President Biden, Vice President Harris, my colleagues on the other side of the aisle in the United States Senate and House of Representatives – secure the border, enforce the laws of the land, keep the American people safe and secure during a global pandemic and during a heightened risk of terrorism.


“Do the right thing, show some leadership. The President of the United States campaigned as a steady hand, someone blessed with competence, the most qualified of person in the United States of America, to be president of the United States.


“Yet, we have this situation. We have this situation where we have open borders. Where there’s an international perception, accurate, that one can fly to our Southern Border and walk right in. There’s also a growing perception that Democrats in Congress, as so many have advocated, might slip an amnesty provision into a partisan reconciliation bill.


“Listen, it’s time for leadership. I will be fighting, my colleagues will be fighting hammer and tong against this complete abdication of leadership,” said Senator Young.
