Press Releases

Washington, D.C. U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) released a statement after Senate Democrats voted against a common sense amendment to the budget resolution that would have prevented the Biden Administration’s dangerous catch-and-release policies.
 
“By restoring catch-and-release policies, the Biden Administration and Senate Democrats are sending a signal to the world that it is okay to enter our borders illegally,” Rubio said. “Not only will it result in more illegal immigration into our country amid a global pandemic but also at a time when Americans are struggling to find work. Worst of all it means countless men, women and children will entrust their lives to smugglers in an attempt to enter the U.S. The human cost of these policies are real, and it is shameful Democrats would return to these dangerous policies that have failed America for decades.”
