U.S. Sen. Katie Britt (R-Montgomery) continued her criticism of President Joe Biden's immigration policy with an appearance on FNC's "Fox & Friends" on Tuesday.
In addition to her comments on Monday, Britt said what is happening at the southern border is a clear example of putting America last.
"This is another prong of the failed Bidenomics," said Britt. "You know that actual entry [Eagle Pass] does about $34 billion a year in trade. Every day, we have to shut that down which we saw them have to do. It's about $100 million. This is the definition of America last."
Britt said frustration among Republicans in Washington is growing as they continue to receive resistance from Democrats who are fighting for an open border. She argued open borders allow entry for drug cartels, human traffickers and terrorists.
"We know we've had more known terrorists caught between our ports of entry," Britt continued. "We are almost at 300 caught between our ports of entry, and Brian, I have heard you say it before, there are 1.7 million people that have come here in the Biden administration that we never touched gloves with. We saw them, but we never touched gloves. You know, we don't know who they are, where they're going, or what their intentions are, and truly, the American people deserve better."
