U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) issued the following statement ahead of Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano's visit to Texas:
"Given that Washington Democrats like Senator Reid have a hard time understanding what "operational control' of the border means, I'm encouraged to see Sec. Napolitano visit the Texas border.
"I hope Sec. Napolitano returns to Washington and relays to the President and Senate Democrats what Texans already know: our border is not secure and the federal government has a long way to go."
