Press Releases

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senators John McCain (R-AZ), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Jeff Flake (R-AZ) today released the following statement on legislation to address the humanitarian crisis on the U.S.-Mexico border:

“Last year, we helped lead the effort to pass immigration reform legislation that received 68 votes in the United States Senate. While we continue to support the goals of comprehensive immigration reform, none of us would support including that bill in legislation needed this year to address the current humanitarian crisis on our southern border. Any legislation considered this year must be focused exclusively on addressing the current crisis, halting the flow of unaccompanied children crossing the border and preventing future waves from making the dangerous journey north.”
