Senate Democrats blocked a resolution by Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK) which stated the current influx of migrants at the southern border constitutes a crisis.
Though Democrats shot down the resolution, it was an uncontroversial one according to a recent poll finding 76 percent of registered voters believe the surge at the border is a crisis that must be addressed immediately.
“It’s obvious to just about everyone outside of Washington that the situation on our southern border is a crisis. I can’t believe that anyone wouldn’t believe that it’s a crisis,” Inhofe began his floor speech. “But there are some who would answer that it isn’t a crisis. President Biden and the DHS Secretary refuse to call it a crisis.”
“They [the administration] call it a challenge. This isn’t a challenge. This is a crisis,” Inhofe stated.
