McCormick Criticizes Senate Border Bill, Calls for Stronger Measures

Pennsylvania Senate Republican candidate Dave McCormick disagrees with the Senate’s move to consider a bipartisan border security agreement. After visiting the southern border in Arizona, McCormick called the legislation “problematic.” McCormick expressed frustration with President Biden, stating that the power to stop the influx of migrants into the country lies with the president.

McCormick, running against incumbent Sen. Bob Casey Jr., has been critical of the bipartisan Senate bill since its introduction. He believes the bill does not do enough to secure the southern border and is more focused on expediting the asylum process.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer’s plan to vote on the bill, initially negotiated by Sens. Chris Murphy, Kyrsten Sinema, and James Lankford, has stirred political tensions. The legislation previously failed in the Senate, and a second vote is expected ahead of the November election.

During McCormick’s visit to Yuma, Arizona, he witnessed groups of people crossing the border, including individuals from Syria and Chinese nationals. He advocates for “new leadership” and considers himself a strong voice on the issue.

Immigration remains a top concern for voters, with a majority disapproving of Biden’s handling of the matter. McCormick asserts that, despite his disapproval of the bipartisan deal, he is willing to compromise and find common ground.

The border security debate is likely to persist as the November election approaches, with Republicans emphasizing Biden’s challenges in securing the border. McCormick reiterates his commitment to problem-solving, despite being a conservative.
