BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. McCAIN. Will the Senator yield for a question?

BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. McCAIN. Has the Senator ever been to the Arizona-Mexico border?

BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. McCAIN. May I ask when that was?

BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. McCAIN. In the early 2000s. I would say to the Senator from Nebraska, she is so ill-informed from the statement I just heard. I don't know where to begin, except to say that if she doesn't think this legislation secures the border, she hasn't spent any time on the border--certainly not meaningful time. And I can't express my disappointment in the series of false statements the Senator just made.

BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. McCAIN. Madam President, I would welcome the Senator from Nebraska to come to the border and see what has been done and what can be done with the use of technology. And to somehow believe our border cannot be secured by this legislation argues strenuously for a visit, and I invite the Senator. I would be glad to join her at any time.
