Senator Blunt's Statement On Hoeven/Corker Amendment


Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Senator Roy Blunt (Mo.) released the following statement today regarding the Senate's vote to proceed to an immigration amendment introduced by U.S. Senators John Hoeven (N.D.) and Bob Corker (Tenn.).


"I voted against proceeding to this amendment because I am concerned it does not adequately put border security first, which must be our top priority. I'm also increasingly concerned the administration objects to measurable results on border security, even though they admit 100 percent awareness is, in fact, possible.

"As I've repeatedly said, I can't support a final bill that does not first and foremost secure our border. I was very disappointed the Senate rejected several key border security amendments that I co-sponsored, and thus far, the Senate bill still fails to address this critical challenge."
