WASHINGTON, DC – Senator James Lankford (R-OK), lead Republican on the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Subcommittee on Government Operations and Border Management, joined Kudlow on Fox Business to sound the alarm over the national security crisis at the southern border and push for policy changes to fix it. Amid the Biden Administration’s push to provide further funding for Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan, Lankford has been clear: we will not pass funding without serious policy that stops the chaos at the border.
Lankford on what’s next for the border security policy discussions he’s leading … The Senate actually finished its last vote of the week a few minutes ago. I will remain here to continue to go through the negotiations. Most of my colleagues are heading out. I’m not the only Republican in this negotiation. There are multiple eithers going through. I’m the tip of the spear in the final negotiation process. There are Republicans in the House and Senate trying to work through this process. We’re going to keep working. I’m skeptical it will be finished because the White House continues to drag their feet on text. If we don’t have text we’ll not move. They can say orally what they agree to, until we see it in writing, that is a very different issue.
